 Professional Membership Required Hunting Mice While the Elephants Run Wild One of the most common traps we have seen large enterprises fall into is the myth that they first need to instill basic procurement hygiene before addressing the management of strategic suppliers. This typically plays out in the form of focusing on core procurement processes, people, data quality and pre-signature technology. By its very nature, this classic strategy involves treating the strategic suppliers equally just like any other supplier. In reality, however, this small subset of the supply base which concentrates a very large percentage of the dollar spend, is where the majority of the value leakage occurs and seldom gets the necessary attention. In this session SirionLabs will foreground the importance of managing the strategic supply base alongside the broader supply base and talk specifically about the global best practices that have emerged in this space over the past decade at the level of processes, tools and practices within the world’s best managed enterprises.  More »
