Moline, IL (PRWEB) March 8, 2007
World class procurement and supply management offers the potential for enormous top-line and bottom-line benefits. Turning that huge potential into reality is the challenge, and is the subject of this presentation. This presentation, by Robert Rudzki, co-author of Straight to the Bottom Line and the recently released On-Demand Supply Management, will address how leading companies are gaining a competitive edge through their supply management efforts.
This presentation will be given at the National Association of Purchasing Managers dinner on March 21, 2007 at the O'Hare Marriott Hotel (8535 W. Higgins Road, Chicago, IL 60631 773/693-4444)
Rudzki will discuss the unique challenges faced by senior executives as they search for their next source of competitive advantage. CEOs, Presidents, COOs, CFOs, CPOs and other key managers will find this presentation particularly useful for learning new supply management best practices including comprehensive strategies, streamlined metrics, and easy-to-use tools they can apply immediately.
This presentation will explain the strategic levers by which a company can drive improvements in Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) and share best practices on how to ensure those benefits actually find their way to the income statement and balance sheet. Rudzki also explains the language that procurement professionals need to use in order to communicate successfully with the executive suite.
