April 15, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

Today’s buzz: Risk. 

Supplier risk management is the fastest growing discipline within supplier management. Why?

Think ‘technology’.

The experts speak.

Sarah Hill, Baylor MBA: “Failures, repeated failures, are sign posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.” (C. S. Lewis)
