Market Analysis and Forecasting.
It all begins with the forecast. Whether it's the strategic plan, the annual goals, the monthly projections, or tomorrow's inventory, all managers face the same challenge: developing and implementing plans to ensure that your organization remains a proactive entity. Market analysis is key to staying ahead of the pack. Learn how other organizations have used competitive intelligence to strengthen their position.

Supplier Relationships
Once the plan is made, the supplier becomes a key partner in the supply management circle. Strong relationships are essential for success. Effective interaction adds value that resonates throughout the entire organization.

Integrating E-Commerce
Put together all that you've learned about e-commerce; the fundamentals are sound. Take the next step and leverage the ripple effect of e-business. Without total integration, you'll be going around in circles. Forrester Research predicts that B2B e-commerce sales will reach $2.7 trillion by 2004. Are you ready?

Who Should Attend
Supply management professionals, senior buyers, directors, and cross-functional team members involved in planning, implementing, and supporting electronic business and/or supply chain management initiatives in their organizations. Includes e-commerce, global procurement, and supply chain professionals who want to hone their skills in market analysis, e-commerce, and supplier relationships.

This program is designed for supply managers looking to strengthen their contributions to the organization. This is an opportunity to analyze and learn about three key elements of the supply management process. Attend this program if you have embraced technology but you are looking for new ways to leverage existing platforms and processes. Also if you want to increase your ROI through other value-add propositions such as improving forecasting and market analysis or reinforcing your commitment to supplier relationships. If you want to improve your organization then this program is for you.

In addition to three dynamic keynote speakers, all sessions are directed by leading practitioners or subject matter experts in the field. NAPM selects speakers based on their real-world experience, professional perspectives, and practical solutions. Learn from the best.
