IQPC 2015 Chief Procurement Officer Exchange is an invitation-only event catering to senior purchasing, sourcing, procurement and supply chain executives responsible for providing strategic leadership and guidance within their corporations.

“In an era of big data, the intelligence garnered by traditional methods of modeling is frequently out-paced by an onslaught of real-time information. Organizations are going to have to reconsider, and potentially re-configure, the means by which they measure their performance,” said Wadhwa, vice president, global supply chain operations, Avnet Electronics Marketing. “My session will focus on the various ways in which procurement professionals can maximize the impact of their supply chains by determining which metrics matter most. A big part of optimizing the impact of analytics is understanding its limitations. My goal is to help attendees discover how the relationship between the metrics makes them actionable.”

Key discussion points in the presentation will include:

• Standardization of metrics across the enterprise

• Utilizing SCOR metrics as a standard for performance management

Leveraging SCORmark to drive competitive advantage
