webinar description

In this webinar, Brittany Whitmore hosts special guests, Jon Hansen and Kelly Barner, procurement and supply chain professionals, and authors of Procurement at a Crossroads. Jon and Kelly will take listeners through some of the key insights in the book and share their thoughts on the state of procurement today.

The book takes a close look at the field of procurement during a time of extraordinary transition. The authors identify nine key questions critical to those in the profession and then present multiple perspectives on each as well as well-researched case examples from the field of procurement as well as the larger business environment. The book digs into topics such as changing professional demographics, technology, media coverage, public vs private sector, and finance without shying away from traditionally taboo subjects or points of view.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • There is a bright tomorrow for practitioners ready to seize the opportunity

  • There are certain topics that, until now, no one in procurement has been willing/able to discuss

  • Be among the leaders that step into influential roles based on their time in procurement
