Andy Flores, partner at ScottMadden, and Marc Miller and Jordan Gillis, directors at ScottMadden, will present “Industry Leading Performance – How Do You Measure Up?” During this workshop, ScottMadden will share insights and facilitate discussions among industry professionals on the establishment and use of key performance indicators for tracking internal performance as well as that of suppliers. This session will also explore approaches for managing key supplier relationships in the areas utilities care about most.
