With the current economic downturn leading to supply chain disruption and the potential liquidation of key suppliers, optimising the supply chain becomes extremely vital. The Asian culture can be a major barrier in enhancing procurement, sourcing and contracts management particularly in the areas of governance and transparency. Asian companies are now finding ways to pursue a pragmatic spend management discipline across their organisations. With most of the expenditure incurred in various categories of direct and indirect materials and services, including outsourcing, savings generated along these items will significantly improve the bottom line.

Can you accelerate supply chain re-engineering efforts to improve efficiencies and cost savings?
Are you able to assess supply chain risk management?
Do you know how to build a sustainable and on-going sourcing strategy?

This 2-day practical workshop on “Strategic Sourcing in Asia” acts as a strong, neutral enabler for companies to embrace best practices of category sourcing. Charlie and
Mark will build the business case for strategic sourcing and show you how to address spend categories and suppliers through proper strategic sourcing processes and
methodologies. They will also help to strengthen your organisation’s supply market intelligence, category profiling, sourcing approach, supplier portfolio and selection. Illustrated with case examples from the Oil & Gas, Pharmaceutical and Transportation industries, learn how to implement a sustainable sourcing programme throughout your company’s spend lifecycle.
