Webinar: Procurement 2016 Big Trends and Predictions

webinar description

The procurement industry is constantly evolving and shifting, forcing supply management professionals across the globe to prepare for change and respond to rapid innovation in supply markets, changing dynamics in both market and regulatory environments, as well as the generally increasing speed of commerce. 2015 saw advances in global interconnectivity, the viability of business networks, the continued rise of “extended” and non-employee labor, and new and exciting platforms that are actively revolutionizing the procurement function.

In 2016, procurement departments, their operations, culture, and systems, the way in which they transform knowledge into strategies and those strategies into performance, must all keep pace. In the age of innovation, procurement agility will define market leadership. So, if you’re a Chief Procurement Officer, sourcing executive, category manager, or other contributor to a procurement operation, the big question is:

Are you ready for 2016?

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Hear about the areas of focus from 2015 and how those can be carried forward in the new year

  • Be prepared to keep up the pace of advancement

  • Determine whether your procurement organization is ready for 2016
