Beyond Spend Influence – How Procurement Can Lead the Enterprise by Transforming Supply Management
Procurement organizations must move at the speed of stakeholders, and this is a tall order in a pandemic and a volatile economy. Yet, this “agility” is often reactive, and procurement still continues to struggle in delivering more strategic impact beyond its core value proposition of driving cost/spend reductions, in managed spend categories.

In this session, you’ll learn how others are upskilling their procurement services and capabilities to transform themselves — and the enterprise — in a more powerful approach than just traditional spend influence tactics.
