Supply Chain, Logistics and Procurement 

What will we cover?

Covid-19 has affected many supply chains and logistics despite the heroic efforts of many firms and their teams. Many companies have no choice but to revisit their procurement.

We start by exploring the fundamentals of the procurement cycle and why each phase contributes to the supply chain function and effective cost management.

The group then moves on to consider the best way to develop tender documents, alongside the need for supplier and post-tender appraisals.

We also explore the difference between performance and supplier relationship management, before identifying tools to help in your day-to-day role. 

We look briefly at the Modern Slavery Act and the implications for UK businesses today, as well as other legal requirements and due diligence

The session then explores different types of supply chain, before explaining how to strengthen your relationships with suppliers and manage your procurement network. 

We end by looking at what resources are available, next steps and where to get more help.
