Supplier Risk Management in Direct Procurement: New Challenges, Technologies and Solutions

In the current business environment, enterprises are struggling to mitigate the impacts of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) on their supply chain operations. And they are recognizing that a great deal of this effort needs to be focused on suppliers of essential direct materials. But continuously monitoring supplier risk is a serious challenge; it requires significant amounts of data as well as the analytical power to drive intelligence from that data.

In this webinar from GEP and WBR/ProcureCon, experts from GEP and Global Risk Management Solutions (GRMS) will discuss supplier risk management frameworks through the lens of direct material sourcing. They will look at a variety of risk factors and how they can impact business continuity; the new technological tools for gathering, sharing and analyzing data; and how to pinpoint the approaches that work for different supplier categories.
