Class Topics

Setting Priorities in Your Supply Chain – identifying, tracking and managing what matters.

Tools and action-focused insights to help sort through information to prioritize and move forward. We will review specifically how assessing items, materials and suppliers can help you allocate resources toward actions that will have greater impact and help make your daily routines more effective.

Improving Service and Reliability – using analytics, setting expectations and becoming better partners.

Using analytics and statistics to set expectations, monitor performance and determine areas of focus for greater alignment with customers and suppliers. How to get more from your systems and direct your efforts to increasing reliability and improving service.

Evolving from Procurement to Strategic Sourcing – building collaboration.

Learn and consider a categorization model for suppliers (and customers) to help create collaboration and identify partners that can help in the creation of a more aligned supply chain. The need for innovative approaches in current markets, and how to develop innovation agreements and longer-term partnerships.

Risk Assessment – ideas and frameworks to consider.

Today’s business and international trade environment is a constantly changing landscape. Then consider weather, crop projections, transport and supply interruptions and there are lots of risks to consider and try to create contingency plans to manage. We will discuss some risk management frameworks that coupled with prioritization tools can make keeping up with issues and keeping your business partners informed and aligned to planned actions more manageable.

Flavor Industry – specific industry concerns and issues.

We will also address some flavor industry perspectives and take your input to discuss issues and events that you are seeing in our industry. Things like FSMA and even shelf life concerns, and real world dynamics like shorter product lifecycles and trends toward “natural” and “organic”.
