As the old saying goes, “you are the company you keep”. The same can be said about supplier relationships: the ones you associate with will have a profound impact on the business. Sourcing plays a crucial role in this equation; they hold the keys to building trust and developing efficiency with suppliers in order to optimize value and reduce risk in relationships. But disparate interactions, disorganized documents, and a constantly evolving ecosystem make supplier relationships anything but simple.
Against these hurdles, Sonia Danforth, Senior Global Category Manager at Fitbit, has successfully transformed the public company’s supplier management by focusing on three factors: delivering value beyond dollars and cents, engaging in cohesive strategy planning with key suppliers, and staying sharp in the supplier ecosystem. This webinar focuses on seamless collaboration, putting sourcing, stakeholders, and suppliers on the same page and keeping critical projects ahead of risk and on pace.
