Speaker/Instructor: Richard Weissman

Target Audience: Business owners, senior leaders, and managers/supervisors in the construction industry.

Improve the operational and financial performance of your construction business by dynamically managing your supply chain. Transform your contractors and sub-contractors into high performing suppliers! Effectively and efficiently manage their performance by applying innovative supply chain management techniques and processes adapted for use in the construction industry. Vigorous supply chain management, in any sized business, leads to greater operational success, reduced costs, higher customer satisfaction and improved financial performance. The supply chains of small businesses are as critical to a company’s success as those in larger firms. Smaller companies often lack a comprehensive strategy to maximize their inter-firm relationships, including managing multi-level supplier performance and customer interactions. This session will allow small and growing businesses to take steps in transitioning their supply chain operations from an administrative chore to an active management process, essential to remaining competitive and relevant in today’s complex business environment.
