Risk mitigation in sourcing and procurement has always been a part of the process when managing supplier relationships. To say that risk has moved to the forefront of the procurement professionals thoughts is an understatement.

We will also address the traditional types of risk management, pre/post pandemic and how to structure are risk management model internally, so be prepared to participate in a group and breakout discussion!
