Webinar: When Sourcing In Procurement Falls Short

webinar description

Mature procurement organizations spend countless hours strategically sourcing multiple categories. Unfortunately, these same organizations miss one crucial step, they spend no time developing a strategy to manage the categories you've fought tooth and nail to source. That, from our perspective, is a huge strategic miss.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Fundamentals of developing a category strategy

  • Steps to managing a category on the backend

  • Communicate value and performance while reducing cost
