Supply Management Survey

Date: Wednesday August 10, 2011
Time: 1:00 PM Eastern / 12:00 PM Central
Speaker: Robert J. Engel, C.P.M., of Resources Global Professionals
This free one-hour educational event will highlight the results of the recently-completed annual survey of supply chain executives done by Resources Global Professionals.  More than eighty Chief Procurement Officers and other high-level supply chain management executives participated in the 2011 survey.  Of the companies represented by the respondents, 80% are publically traded, and 66% have global or multinational operations.  The top priorities identified by the supply chain leaders responding the survey include reducing costs, strengthening supplier relationships and improving inventory management.  This web seminar will give you access to the current thinking on these and other topics by leaders in the supply chain management profession.

Your presenter will be Robert J. Engel, C.P.M., the Senior Practice Leader for Resources Supply Chain Management at Resources Global Professionals.  Mr. Engel has been in the supply chain profession for over 35 years, and was one of the original founders of The Procurement Centre, a supply chain management professional services company acquired by Resources Global Professionals in 2002.  He is a practitioner and a thought leader who has conducted training and continuing education seminars and workshops for both clients and supply chain management professional associations.
