2020 TSMSDC Raising the Bar Workshops Presented by Trane Technologies


While being a part of a corporate or an MBE network has its advantages, awareness of how your customers evaluate the potential risk you present to their supply chain is equally important. With the current economic challenges, customers are keenly focused on and sensitive to the impact suppliers can have on future business. The reviewable risks can include current and future financial stability, strategic agility if natural disaster, geographical location, capacity availability of assets, work force availability, and growth based on revenue percentage. We will take a deeper look into the topic of risk during this workshop.  Register Now
