HERE IS WHAT YOU MISSED: March 15th, 2018 was the Professional Development & Networking Dinner
March 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree - $30
Our third speaker of 2018 was Maria Thompson.
Maria is founder, President and CEO of Agile Sourcing Partners, an integrated supply and contract management company. Prior to founding Agile in 2006, Maria worked at Sempra Energy utilities in supply chain management where she was the Project Management Coordinator for many strategic sourcing initiatives.
MARCH’S EVENING’S TOPIC:
“Getting Supply Chain Process Change Acceptance in Cross Functional Teams”
Maria shared the details behind the scenes so professionals can accommodate their process as needed when it makes sense. Often supply chain professionals do not feel empowered to make the needed process changes to the supply chain performance parameters that they are asked to produce. Maria discussed how to get buy-in and get approval from cross-functional teams in medium to large scale companies when you want to implement a process/change quickly.
