webinar description

Join Andrew Bartolini, Chief Research Officer at Ardent Partners, as he presents the findings from his new report, The State of Strategic Sourcing 2015, and highlights the ideas of "supplier-centric" sourcing and risk management in a webinar sponsored by LexisNexis.

Every year, the pace of business continues to accelerate, forcing enterprise sourcing teams to adapt to changes and shifts within global markets in order to stay competitive. Although workloads and responsibilities continue to increase, sourcing teams remain understaffed with no relief in sight. As a result, collaboration, early engagement, and both process linkage and automation can become valuable force multipliers to help extend a sourcing team’s impact throughout the enterprise.

This State of Strategic Sourcing 2015 webinar will examine the pressures and challenges facing sourcing leaders, today, as well as the strategies, capabilities, and technologies that they are bringing to bear in their battle to reduce costs, improve quality, and manage risk.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Hear how agile sourcing in 2015 incorporates collaborative and technology-driven strategies, particularly supplier management, to engage suppliers and other critical stakeholders sooner in the sourcing process.

  • See how Best-in-Class sourcing teams leverage these same strategies and related capabilities to outperform the competition and deliver more value to the enterprise.

  • Understand how understand how advanced supplier-centric strategies related to risk and performance management are extending the value that sourcing teams can deliver.
