ISM2018 Session Insights (Episode 7) - Pulp, Paper, and Supply Chain Preparedness
The rash of natural disasters that closed 2017 were a wake-up call for supply chain managers across North America. Many suffered significant losses and many more found themselves implementing their disaster response plans for the first time. Unsurprisingly, risk preparedness and response both figure heavily into ISM2018's agenda. Source One Senior Analyst Dejana Dosen joins ISM2018 Session Insights to discuss the ongoing impact of Hurricanes Maria, Irma, and Harvey on the price of pulp and paper. She also offers her suggestions for developing and implementing effective risk management strategies.

ISM2018 Session Insights (Episode 6) - The Price of a Bad Procurement Hire
Organizations lose a lot more than money when they hire the wrong Procurement professional. Reputation, productivity, and company culture all take a hit when a mismatched hire joins the team. As Procurement's talent gap widens, it becomes more and more important that Procurement only hire the right individuals. Andy Jones, an expert Procurement recruiter, joins ISM2018 Session Insights to discuss some of the consequences of ineffective hiring and describe the benefits of working with a third party. An outside perspective, he suggests, could provide the extra bandwidth and category expertise necessary to effectively recruit and assess promising candidates.

ISM2018 Session Insights (Episode 5) - Rotational Programs for Procurement Talent
Experts across the supply management space are confident that millennial talent will help drive Procurement into its next generation. They are less confident, however, in their methods for retaining these young hires and ensuring they reach their full potential. Source One Senior Project Analyst Jennifer Engel believes rotational programs cold be the answer. Providing young talent with access to multiple business areas and promoting a diverse skillset, these programs ensure millennial hires feel engaged and reach their full potential. She not only speaks to the benefit of rotational programs, but offers her tips for guaranteeing their success.
