At Sourcing Outlook 2019, attendees can choose from a variety of round table discussions. Called Theme Discussions by EBG – they are just that – group sessions where peers and experts can draw from each others experiences. Each session with a story of its own and with highly skilled moderators eager to both share experiences and learn from the group.
Let’s dig deeper into the different topics and areas that will be covered on October 10th – starting with Risk management and Sustainability.
Risk & Sustainability Focus
Minimizing risk and increasing sustainability is clearly for many both in the Sourcing Outlook 2019 program but also for the delegates joining. Not new these areas today are developing rapidly. New and increased ways of monitoring more and more detailed scenarios, quicker response possibilities to actual risks and ways to communicate with suppliers in due time. Not only when disaster has already struck – but continuously.
Being able to do so with more than your absolute top tier 1 suppliers is also becoming a reality. Shared and enhanced data is doing wonders to company insight and category managers, sourcing managers and CPOs to day truly have a possibility to act upon insight.
