One event which promises to be most excellent is the upcoming Third-Party Risk Management & Oversight Summit, on March 20 & 21 at the Princeton Club in New York City. I will be attending and speaking at the event and I hope that you can join me. I have had the previously had the opportunity to do a podcast with the Event Chair, Melissa Evans, Lead Quality Systems, Supply Chain Management, Royal Caribbean Cruises (Episode 307). Today I visit with  Forrest Deegan, the Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer for Abercrombie & Fitch.

Forrest detailed How to Perform an ROI analysis of a third-party program for both the sales and supply chain side of things, drawing from his experience at A&F. He related some of the costs for getting it wrong in the short-term, along with smart money investments and cost-cutting ideas and then provided some insight into the cost-benefit analysis on A&F third-party programs.
