Supply Chain 101

June 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Are you looking at your supply chain from a strategic perspective?

 

In partnership with CIRAS (Iowa MEP), we’re launching a new eight-part cohort series called Supply Chain 101.

 
By building in provisions for market, supplier, and availability shifts, you can avoid hitting the react button, control your costs, improve your productivity – and perhaps even sleep better at night. 
The interconnected network of people and entities that comprise your supply chain touches every aspect of your business, and it requires more than just technical fixes or finding reliable suppliers. 
 
The series kicks off with an in-person session that you can attend in one of three convenient locations followed by seven virtual sessions.
 

 

ONE IN-PERSON SESSION (Choose Location):

  • Portland Metro: June 27 
  • Bend: July 8 
  • Eugene: July 11
    TIME: 9:00 AM to Noon (Snacks & beverages included) 

 

SEVEN VIRTUAL SESSIONS:

July 17, 24, 31, August 7, 14, 21, 28 

TIME: 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM

COST: 

This program is offered at no cost to participants, thanks to funding from NIST.  (Value: $300 per person)

LIMIT: 2 people per company


Topic

We will take a deep dive into some of the biggest areas of opportunity, including:

  • How to better identify potential suppliers 
  • How to deal with underperforming suppliers 
  • Negotiating with suppliers to get the best deal
