Rise & Shine - Atlanta


9 AM – 12 PM

What are the riskmethods Rise & Shines?

riskmethods Rise & Shines are half-day sessions that will bring together the best and the brightest in procurement and supply chain, to share their successes, challenges and obstacles on all things risk management. Some organizations have rolled out extensive risk management programs that involve various departments, technologies and data sources, while others are starting off small, allowing their company to focus on automation at a slower-pace. The stories that will be shared are a compilation of tips, tricks and techniques that will allow you to learn from other’s experiences.

Touching on important topics including digitization, operational excellence and avoiding disruptions, these events will leave you with:

  • The ability to react faster. If you can react faster to risk, you can recover faster from supply chain disruptions—and that’s the edge you need to get ahead of the competition.
  • The foresight to be proactive. Addressing risk proactively is the only way to truly master it, and you can’t do it without the help of advanced technology.
  • The visibility to be risk aware. Risk doesn’t have to be something that sneaks up on you.

Join us in Atlanta for a morning session that will get you the advice you need to be successful in creating a more reliable risk network!

Disrupting the Traditional Way of Managing a Global Supply Chain

Gregory Toornman, Global Vice-President of Materials, Logistics and Freight Management, AGCO

Supply chain disruptions come in many forms. In today's ever-changing business and global environments, reacting faster to potential disruption is an essential element of properly managing your global supply chains. Over the past 7 years, AGCO has been working on creating an end-to-end digital supply chain that has delivered cost reductions, performance optimization and integration across various aggregate systems. Learn how AGCO manages their supply chain in three key areas: Disruptions caused by risk that you can control, risk you can't control and risk you can somewhat control.
