CASE STUDY / DAY 1

The Supplier Partnership Development as a sustainable tool to insure Time to Market and Cost Control

Developing partnerships with some given key Suppliers permits, in case of new projects, to rely on people who can quickly understand our needs, objectives and constraints due to our own activity. On the one hand it is important to strengthen existing cooperation with strong partners and on the other hand it is key to enlarge our ecosystem to newcomers and new technologies. Besides, contractualisation that expresses specific ways of working and governance modes is a cement of the partnership we look for.

  • Supplier partnership definition and benefits
  • Partner profile
  • Selection process and criteria
  • Frame agreement and contractualisation
  • Type of governance
  • Partner evaluation

CASE STUDY / DAY 2

Managing an efficient supplier risk management system

In order to conduct a proper risk management profile for a corporation, and especially in M&A and business divestiture activities, it is important to evaluate the security of a supply base and the risk profile of a company. The presentation is about implementation of such a framework and process as well as about strategic implication it has to the company evaluation.

  • Risk framework
  • Mitigation strategies
  • Impact on valuation
