UTPC 2017’s Topic!

October 12, 2016 · About UTPC

The team has made a decision. After weeks of brainstorming and discussions, we can now announce the topic of the UTPC 2017!


The official topic is: ‘Handling the unknown – Risk management in Purchasing’. Nowadays, organisations are operating in increasingly complex and uncertain environments with high risks of supply disruptions making purchasing an increasingly complex task. The environmental pressures and risks require companies to constantly and consequently analyse and reduce these risks. Risks are unforeseen, so how do you handle the unknown?
