Sponsors.  ISM- Delaware, DuPont, and GEP

Program Description: To successfully grow and utilize suppliers in key markets, organizations need to develop appropriate strategies and tactics tailored to the local market yet consistent with overall corporate goals and guidelines. This requires insights into local industries, customers, competitors, supply chains, government agencies and regulations, risks, and key success factors. Access to timely, accurate information is a huge strategic advantage. And its absence is a sizeable risk. We are honored Marcy Bucci , GEP Vice President, Procurement Intelligence & Advisory Services will help us build knowledge and skills in this area. GEP knows the importance of the right information at the right time as only sourcing specialists can. Drawing from this experience base, Marcy will discuss:

  1. What is Supply Market Intelligence
  2. External : Industries, Markets, Suppliers
  3. Internal : Supplier Performance, supplier-data
  4. Where do you get it
  5. Sources for building an effective fact base  
  6. How do you use it both inside your organization and with supply partners
  7. Illustration through example(s)
