Supplier Management Training Overview

How much time and effort do you spend with your suppliers? How much of that limited energy is consumed mitigating bad suppliers? Most likely, the Pareto Principle (80/20 rule) applies to your supplier program just as it does for every other FDA regulated finished product manufacturer across the globe, right? 

So what can be done? How can we turn your supplier risk challenges into a more positive, lasting, robust, repeatable and scalable supplier risk reduction program?

In this webinar, we will unpack the latest FDA requirements for supplier quality assurance (SQA). With this framework, we can then explore those key components that must be included in your supplier onboarding and ongoing supplier risk management program to better optimize supplier performance.  

Webinar Includes : All the training handouts , certificate ,Q/A and 90 mins Live Webinar
