In today’s competitive business climate, supply chain management professionals are constantly seeking out creative ways to reduce costs, assure and improve the quality of the final product and achieve a faster time to market. Strategic sourcing is one method that procurement managers can use to help achieve these supply chain goals.

Identifying the best suppliers is important. However, there is more to strategic sourcing. Cultivating a positive and long-term relationship by working closely with your suppliers can provide many wining scenarios. Developing solid relationships can help sourcing professionals become better at meeting cost, speed-to-market and quality goals, while allowing suppliers to more efficiently tailor and deliver materials to precise purchaser specifications.

Attending the 2nd Annual Global Strategic Sourcing and Procurement Summit will enable you to keep your knowledge up-to-date, to understand, plan and implement better strategic sourcing strategies, effectiveness and efficiency of your supply chain infrastructure and reduce overall costs almost immediately. At the same time the best strategic sourcing strategy can create opportunities for your company to improve corporate image, increase sales and market-share, and reduce costs.

Key topics:

  • How to build the Right Strategic Sourcing Environment to Cut Your Costs and Minimize Your Risks
  • How to know when it is time to re-evaluate global sourcing strategies
  • Value creation – one of the most important parts of the sourcing strategy
  • Are there new principles to Indirect and Direct Procurement to Create New Efficiencies and Realize Savings?
  • Who and where to partner, who will be the winners and where they will be located?
  • How technology can enable higher visibility and control over different facets of the procurement process, such as: sourcing activity, supplier evaluation and selection, contract terms compliance and overall spend
  • How to invest in skilled professionals with strong negotiation skills and overall knowledge of the industry, the raw materials, the costs and the suppliers
