CPO and Executive Roundtable with Coupa

Interactive Workshop: Building a Resilient and Responsible Supply Chain of the Future

The ever-increasing pace and intensity of disruptions has placed Supply Chain Resilience at the forefront of the C-Suite agenda. With supply chain vulnerabilities exposed, the opportunity is greater than ever before for CPOs and CSCOs to come together to build long-term supply chain resilience through the lens of responsibility, and reposition their organizations for growth.  Building a supply chain characterized by both resilience and responsibility does not come without incremental costs. Governments are taking active interest in securing their nations’ supply chains to ensure resiliency, which will have implications on regulation, incentives, and domestic composition requirements. Company shareholders and consumers are putting pressure on organizations to make spend decisions beyond cost criteria, prioritizing sustainability and ethical procurement practices. In this highly interactive workshop, we will learn from each other on how Procurement and Supply Chain can come together to:

  • Shift from a cost minimization to a value maximization mindset
  • Take the opportunity to drive ESG and Diversity objectives
  • Organizational structures and collaboration models
  • Metrics for Impact
  • Role of technology & AI in achieving resilience


This event is by invitation only.
