The first webinar, Leveraging Supplier Innovation, is coming up really soon, and looks at a really hot topic for the profession. It is presented by Robert Handfield, Executive Director of the Supply Chain Resource Co-Operative, Bank of America University Distinguished Professor of Supply Chain Management, and Consulting Editor of the Journal of Operations Management, one of the leading supply chain management journals in the field. Handfield was also the co-author of the very successful book "The Procurement Value Proposition".

Key Topics for the session are:

  • How to identify supplier technologies, build relationships, understand contractual requirements, and establish effective outcomes for innovation.
  • Guidelines and insights on how to create supplier relationships that drive a common approach to creation of innovative solutions that can drive revenue and build customer value.
  • How to identify the issues around intellectual property that challenge open sharing of ideas that is foundational to creation of supplier innovation outcomes.
