Thursday 6th September, 2012

12:05pm to 12:40pm (SMT)

With natural disasters plaguing modern day life, it is no secret to businesses that back up plans are a key concern. But how does procurement fit into the equation? By instigating a risk-proofed strategy when it comes to sourcing suppliers and back up suppliers, procurement can play an invaluable role in ensuring that, should there be a glitch in the supply chain, operations can continue as close to normal as possible:

•Integrating a risk based framework into procurement transformation projects
•Maintaining cash flow in tough times through a multi-pronged sourcing strategy
•Stress testing business continuity plans using the SSO
•Harnessing social media for an extended reach
