SIG Podcast Episode with Moody’s Analytics & Trust Your Supplier

The latest episode of the Sourcing Industry Landscape podcast focuses on how procurement and compliance teams of enterprise organizations are coping with geo-political, regulatory, and industry risks. 

Host Dawn Tiura, SIG President & CEO discusses the Trust Your Supplier and Moody’s Analytics partnerships for illuminating supplier risk with Gary Storr, Trust Your Supplier’s GM, and Enrico Aresu, Moody’s Analytics Director of Compliance & Financial Crime Industry Practice Lead for DACH and BeNeLux. 

Gary describes the evolution of TYS, and why we’ve evolved from an onboarding platform to a full ecosystem of risk & compliance data & tools. Partnering with risk Intelligence data providers, such as Moody’s Analytics, allows TYS users to stay on top of a wide array of compliance regulations, such as the new Human Rights legislation (SCDDA) from Germany.

Good Advice From Canda Rozier

One of my favorite parts of each episode of the Procurement Block podcast, is the advice I get from guests. I ask each guest to offer up some advice or a tip that we as listeners can try at work or at home.

During my conversation with Canda Rozier on change management, Canda offered up these words of wisdom:  “Don’t be afraid to fail. Failure is inevitable and you have to figure out how to take that failure and turn it into a foundation for future success.”

I really appreciate this encouragement from Canda as I continue to try new things both professionally and personally. What about you? Do you find yourself being afraid to fail or have you found a way to turn past failures into success?

New Podcast Episode – Artificial Intelligence

On Trust Your Supplier’s podcast, Procurement Block, we get to hear from the people who are at the forefront of procurement innovation.  

When I think of AI, what comes to mind is the character Jarvis/Vision in the Marvel Universe. While Vision is a sentient being, this is not the only manifestation of artificial intelligence. Edoardo Vignani joins me on the latest episode of the Procurement Block podcast to school me in how AI is being used in procurement today and where it’s headed.

Edoardo is the Marketing Category Vice President for Globality, a company that provides AI-powered Smart Sourcing technology. The episode is out now, so head over to ProcurementBlock.com to listen to our conversation and to view the show notes.

Good Advice From Joyce Harkness

In the United States, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week. Our time is spent sharing food and other traditions with family and friends.  As I’ve been making preparations, I remembered some family-themed advice given to me by Joyce Harkness. 

Joyce joined me on an episode of the Procurement Block podcast and as a single, working mother offered up this tip for managing work and family:  “We have a shared online family calendar. At the beginning of each school year, we would put the usual school and family events in the calendar. And then it helps us then have conversations about who’s attending what.”

Joyce was such a pleasure to have on the show. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to her episode on Supplier Information Management, you can check it on below.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good Advice: Supplier Financial Health

Sometimes we have a tendency to put off important, regular tasks as a way of avoiding the possibility of negative information.  Not scheduling a medical check-up  or delaying a review of your bank statement and bills doesn’t change what’s there. It merely limits the time you have to take any needed actions.

A few weeks ago, Eric Evans and I had a conversation about supplier financial health. He gave me and our podcast listeners some really good advice to look “at getting your digital house in order, data hygiene, and then really hooking this into your workflow and process to make it much more automated so you don’t have to think about it.”

Get the boost you need to tackle his suggestions for visibility & monitoring of the financial health of your suppliers – listen here:
