Seminar Theme: Enhancing the value chain through localisation & community development

Supplier development faces numerous challenges resulting from transformation imperatives, localisation, globalisation, socio-economic factors, buyer advancements, resource constraints, quality demands, cost pressures and the need for industrialisation in growing markets.

Supplier Development is an key component of Supplier Relationship Management and is vital for the transformation of procurement and supply chain management. In the South African context, this includes developing black owned suppliers, especially SME’s and community based suppliers, to deliver much needed economic transformation and to ensure the participation of historically disadvantaged suppliers in the mainstream economy.

During this one-day seminar you will hear from expert speakers and leading companies, sharing up-to-date knowledge and in-depth practical tips about Supplier and Enterprise Development, including an update on the B-BBEE codes of good practice and the advancing of the industrialisation agenda for black suppliers.
