webinar description

Join Greg Tennyson, Joe Payne, Kelly Barner and Philip Ideson in this interactive Q&A led webinar as we discuss if stakeholder alignment is the key to procurement's survival - and if so, how can we become better business partners.

  • To understand how procurement's relationships are critical to our value

  • To hear about the role metrics play in tying procurement to corporate-wide objectives

  • To expand the vision of procurement so that it is ambitious
