Event Summary

Senior Leadership tends to be preoccupied with Procurement’s ability (or inability) to deliver savings to the organization.  Procurement Leaders, however, know that our jobs go well beyond running competitive bids and effective negotiating.  One area we often tout is our role in keeping the business (and Senior Leadership) out of trouble through effective “Vendor Risk Management.”  Breaking that down, who are the vendors, what are the risks, and how do we manage?
