We’re slowly chugging through the summer – in fact, next week’s recommendations will move into August. Actually, we’re already there in a way, because my long term recommendation for this week is just before Labor Day weekend: “Supply Chain and Safety: The Imperative of Partnering to Effectively Manage Contractor Performance and Risk” from ISM and Veriforce on August 29th.
BTW: If you haven’t already, sign up for our mailing list to be sure you get my weekly recommendations in your Inbox each Monday.

According to the description, this webinar is based on one of the most popular sessions at Coupa’s 2018 Inspire conference. Managing suppliers is important, but the level of control procurement would like to have may be too risk-averse to seize available opportunities. Topics covered will include: transacting electronically with suppliers using self-service models, understanding what spend is “at risk”, and finding the right opportunities to drive risk out of the supply base.
