Leveraging Collaborative Procurement to Create a Win-Win-Win Approach to Strategic Relationships

COVID-19 forced many businesses to dramatically change the way they operated today to include the immediate need for digital capabilities. The digital metamorphosis that companies are undergoing today require Procurement and Suppliers to rethink their strategies to develop strategic relationships. Strategic supplier relationships are critical to defining a company’s competitive advantage in the marketplace. Procurement and strategic suppliers both need to understand this shift in relationship and align their strategic objectives to help their customers succeed in creating these strategic advantages. Customers themselves need to rethink their strategy and move from independent brand specific strategies and align to both the good of the brand and the good of the company.

Key Takeaways:

  • The changes in the pace of the IT industry pre-COVID followed by the industry changes brought about by COVID have spawned the need for new strategic relationships
  • Due to the emerging trends in the marketplace, customers and suppliers have to collaborate closely to provide opportunities to drive competitive advantage
  • Procurement and suppliers actually have the same objective which is to develop win-win-win strategic relationships

Deploying Capital Cycle Management in Healthcare

The End-to-End cycle of managing capital involves Planning, Procuring, Managing, and Disposing of Capital Assets. Often, these four processes are completed disparately and are without a data-driven approach or business process. Knowing and understanding what exists in your current capital inventory allows you to analyze, evaluate, and plan for what will be needed in the future. Supply Chains that have visibility can take a long term approach to sourcing capital that extracts maximum buying power for an organization. Physical tracking of assets creates real time information to manage inventory changes. A strong disposition strategy is crucial to ensure that the health system is getting the full value available on their assets externally, or properly disposing of those assets as needed.

Speakers:

Patricia Hoch
Senior Director of Procurement

Sourcing from China Amid a Pandemic and Trade War

The U.S. imported approximately $600 billion worth of products from China in 2020. Over half of these imports were capital goods used by U.S. manufacturers. Clearly, U.S. operations are heavily dependent on Chinese made goods. The same holds true for U.S. supply chains. Sixty cents of every dollar U.S. consumers spend on made-in-China goods go to the U.S. companies responsible for putting Chinese products into their hands. Counterbalancing the ongoing need for U.S.- China trade is the fact that relations between the two countries are at their lowest point since diplomatic relations were established in 1972. Successful supply chain managers need to develop new risk mitigation strategies when sourcing from China.

In this presentation I will discuss aligning best practices with business needs for Planning and Inventory based processes.
