When your workday is consumed by the tactics of managing procurement, it’s nearly impossible to look ahead and plan an organizational strategy for success. Join our expert panel as they discuss procurement best practices and coming trends for putting practical strategies into place. You’ll walk away with everything you need to prepare yourself (and your company) to be the rock stars of the future!

Andrew Bartolini of Ardent PartnersNancy Jorgensen, Director of Product Marketing at SciQuest, and Brett Cornell, VP Value Consultant at SciQuest, will examine these factors in a complimentary webinar (click to register) focused on best practices and strategies that leading CPOs have utilized to overcome enduring challenges and achieve enterprise-wide success. Attendees will receive a briefing on the state of strategic sourcing in 2016, including the pressures and challenges that CPOs and procurement leaders encounter on their path to success, as well as the top strategies that they adopt to overcome them. These strategies include:

  • Collaborating and getting engaged sooner in the sourcing process – it is not enough to simply “show up; Chief Procurement Officers need to show up early and start managing processes sooner.
  • Developing sourcing agility – being able to tailor processes and solutions to meet given needs and being able to quickly shift strategies and approaches.
  • Standardizing and, if possible, automating spend analysis for both visibility and spend intelligence. How can any business function claim to be strategic in its approach if it lacks the full context of its mission and operates in the literal dark?
  • Many more!
