Manuel Palanca from ExceleratedS2P will be delivering the session Managing Supply Chain Risk is no easy task in the current environment. Surrounded by Political uncertainty, an unstable economic landscape, environmental challenges coupled with the standard supply chain issues we live day in day out.

How are leading organisations managing this risk? How are they using Technology to address these challenges? We will take a look at what good looks like and what the characteristics are of these Supply Chain Organisations?

The objective is to share a high level methodology to help understand where you are and discuss three recent case studies that can help shape thinking about where you should be heading:

  • Procurement’s role in a modern S&OP environment
