Learn why supply chain metrics and performance measurement matter in procurement.

A wise manager once said that “You can’t improve what you don’t measure and generally, whatever you measure - improves”. Key performance indicators and metrics provide your procurement and supply chain operation with vital information that you can use to measure success and drive process improvement.

In this information we will discuss how to create a culture of continuous improvement within your operation using metrics. Learn how to determine the right metrics to track and how to use metrics to identify opportunities to improve processes and address operational challenges.

Understand how to tie goals to metrics and learn about how to obtain cooperation from staff to help to achieve goals, and how to keep them informed of progress.
