If you think your current risk management programs are a response to the broad challenges of supply chain uncertainty, you may want to dig a little deeper. As pointed out in the description for this webinar, most of today’s risk management programs were established in reaction to the 2008-2009 global financial crisis. Not only was that a decade ago, it was based on a set group of circumstances and constraints. Today’s challenges are not only likely to be different than they were back then, they are also probably more specific to your company or industry. In this webinar, Bill DeMartino and Stephanie Schori from riskmethods will discuss how to enhance and extend existing SRM programs to account for the increased risk exposure faced by manufacturers TODAY.

And yet, unless they can see eye to eye, and achieve mutual respect and appreciation, neither function will achieve their performance objectives. Join a CPO and a CFO for this webinar where they will talk about relationship dynamics and real world solutions for cross-functional friction and misalignment.

Yes, you read that right. This webinar title includes the ‘T’ word: tactical. Although most organizations and professionals would prefer to be characterized as strategic rather than tactical, it doesn’t have any meaningful value if someone doesn’t execute against the plan. Join CIO.com and Coupa for this webinar featuring Mark Settle, CIO of Okta and author of Truth from the Trenches: A Practical Guide to the Art of IT Management.
