Risky Relationships: Commitments and Expectations
Let’s take a look at the status of your critical relationships - and more specifically – evaluate the long-term resiliency prospects. Do you have a handful of partners that you’ve been faithful to for decades? Or do you swap them out every three years in a reverse-auction, speed-dating style? Are we talking ‘forsake all others’? Will they be there when you need them, 24/7/365, in good times and bad, sickness and health? Or do contracts forged long ago still contain the bygone language of doom – that ‘force majeure’ hold-harmless clause – that carries with it a weight that will crush every hour you have invested to specifically protect your long-term prospects? Elizabeth will share details on the latest UnitedHealth Group program improvements designed to ensure vendor/supplier resilience. (Yes, supply chain. What did you think she was going to talk about?)
