PSS2019 AMERCIA CONFERENCE THEME
Growing in the Age of Risk and Leading with Digital Transformation
Although the United States economy and labor markets are recovering, new challenges such as Environmental Fluctuations, Trade Disputes, Tariffs and many other geopolitical, natural and economic challenges occur and eﬀect both regional and global procurement.
For multinational corporations, it's no doubt that risks are increasing in integrating the global supply network and more transparent and agile supply chain systems need to be enhanced to cope with this ever-changing policy and environment. For regional operators, how to build up their strategic supplier relationships to win long-term beneﬁts in an ever-crowded regional market is what should be addressed and resolved. Meanwhile, digital technologies including Big Data, AI, Block Chain bring greater eﬃciency and accuracy to operations, but worries still exist in cybersecurity, accessing talent, regulatory compliance, and disruptive innovation.
It's absolutely a new opportunity for the all to review your future-ﬁt procurement strategy and ﬁnd the right direction to go to ensure you will stay competitive.

Procurement and supply management professionals recognize the need to produce dramatic results in an increasingly complex business environment. This is especially true in these challenging economic times and necessitates a truly STRATEGIC approach to what was traditionally a transactional procurement function. Truly progressive organizations worldwide have been able to transition from a transactional role to become a strategic sourcing instrument of the organization, which reduces costs, while increasing both efficiency and effectiveness.
Such a strategic transition must concurrently address the critical aspects of supplier management. Progressive organizations must therefore establish the strategic capabilities created by both strategic sourcing and active management of supplier risk to assure an optimized supply chain.
