Best Practices in Global Supplier Relationship Management
Salon E/F
Suppliers are a direct or indirect extension of your organization.

But, they also have the ability to benchmark your own programs and processes against cross-industry leading organizations, joint resource strategic initiatives for mutual growth, enable connections to thought-leaders, and become partners in strategic planning; ultimately enabling improved productivity, enhanced engagement, and increased profitability. This presentation will show how you can use supplier relationship management (SRM) to make your global fleet operation best in class.
