- How procurement adapts to the impact of coronavirus
This webinar will look at how financial risk manifests itself within a supply chain and how procurement can balance pressure from finance with the value of supplier relationships, and what best practice looks like when it comes to financial risk in the supply chain. Organisations have had to "react and respond" by immediately pivoting and focusing on cost containment and visibility whilst almost concurrently moving to the "adapting to a new normal" phase of greater supplier risk management and more agile investment decision-making. Jonathan Webb, head of content for APAC, explains how Procurement Leaders will support procurement teams to focus on urgent, tactical concerns around cost, cash and continuity management as Covid-19 forces functions to shift their priorities. Teams need to be able to have insight into supplier capacity, to find and evaluate alternative sources, to empower teams to move quickly to look for different supply solutions.
