Expect the unexpected: managing risk in an unpredictable world

The global upheavals of the last few years have made one thing evident: businesses must be able to effectively respond to the unexpected and proactively prepare for the next looming disruption.

Procurement is central to this, having become much more involved in risk monitoring and mitigation in the last decade. That said, situations still vary by (and within) organisations – some are advanced, others still struggle to know where to start.

In this 1-hour webinar, hosted by Graham Crawshaw (CASME) and Omer Abdullah (The Smart Cube), our industry expert panel discussed managing risk in an unpredictable world, including:

  • Nature and value of holistic risk management
  • Role of technology and tools
  • Value of the human element in interpreting and acting on risk intelligence

Webinar Date: Thursday, 20th April 2023
