Only two weeks to go until our webinar with riskmethods. The supply chain risk management provider’s software identifies risk along global supply chains, assesses the risk impact and defines appropriate and focused measures for risk prevention or crisis mitigation. The firm is the perfect partner for our upcoming webinar, titled “Keep your enterprise out of the rough: How Titleist built transparency and increased resilience into their supply chain.”
We will be discussing the different aspects of growing supply chain risks that face large, global manufacturing (and other) firms. For Titleist, the largest manufacturer of golf balls in the world (and producer of many items of golf clothing and equipment), supply chain stability is crucial. The firm sources raw materials and finished products from all over the world, so detecting potential risks at an early stage, before they become disruptive, means delivery, compliance and company reputation can be protected.
During our webinar, we will be hearing from Jay Traficante, senior director of supply chain and procurement at Acushnet, Titleist’s parent company. He will be relating the very honest story of how he and his team managed to develop a comprehensive supply chain risk program, with some stumbles along the way. He will also offer insight into how to build contingency, dual-sourcing and supply chain mapping into the modern environment; advise on creating transparency on critical issues in the supply chain; and explain how to drive faster, more insightful responses to gain competitive advantage.
Peter Smith, managing editor of Spend Matters UK/Europe and an experienced ex-CPO, will be hosting. He will speak more generally about current issues in supply chain risk from a procurement angle, like growing political risk in some parts of the world, natural events and reputational risk. There will also be a chance for Q&As after the main presentation.
We will also be hearing from Rolf Zimmer, one of riskmethods’ founders, explaining his strategic perspective on the issue of risk management. He is not only knowledgeable but also very passionate about the topic.
The webinar takes place on Dec. 1 at 11 a.m. EST. (That’s 4 p.m. U.K. time if you’re east of the Atlantic!)
Registration is here (free of charge) and we think you will find this a very useful 45 minutes of your time, regardless of your company size or sector.
