Friday digest: Supplier risks continue to make the headlines


02-Mar-12 17:18

Supply chain finance ‘vital’ to Jaguar Land Rover ambition

 

The carmaker raised concerns about whether its suppliers would be able to keep up with demand and sees supply chain finance as vital to ensure they can.

 

Boycott British suppliers, says the Argentine government

 

As the argument over the sovereignty over the Falkland Islands continues, the Argentinean government has encouraged business leaders to boycott British suppliers, a move that has angered the British government.

 

Game loses support of key supplier

 

After believing it had secured the support of its suppliers to help it through a difficult financial period, Game was dealt a blow as EA, a major games developer backed out.

 

Game will now not be able to stock some of the bestselling titles which are due to be released over the next few months.

 

It has been an interesting week on the blog as well with a Thought Leaders blog from Dr Jo Meehan and Paul Teague.

 

Next step for certification programmes

 

Paul Teague blogged about the future of training programmes and with talent always at the forefront of CPOs thoughts it certainly is worth a read.

 

Sustainable procurement means developing wider influence

 

Meanwhile Dr. Jo Meehan argued that procurement needs to have a much more transformative role in sustainability measures from now on.

 

Plenty of food for thought.
