AOP Live: Partnership as a Service: Driving Change & Delivering Unconventional Returns at UMass

On November 2nd, David Cho, CPO of UMass, joined Phil Schoonmaker, CEO of SupplyLogic, to provide insight into the University of Massachusetts’ journey and answer live audience questions about what he and his team learned along the way:

  • The importance of centralizing procurement so that there can be one ‘attack plan’ for managing large numbers of suppliers and transactions and one approach to influencing stakeholders
  • When and why to leverage experts outside of the organization to advance the partnerships being built internally
  • Insights and intelligence that can be used to advance corporate social responsibility in the form of local, diversity-owned, and environmentally friendly supplier partnerships
