Webinar: Are you really MANAGING Procurement?

Or Does Stuff Just Happen?

webinar description

Join Pierre Lapree, Founder of the Per Angusta SaaS solution, Peter Smith, Managing Editor of Spend Matters UK/Europe and Glen Lovett, Head of Group Procurement FirstGroup for this webinar

We’ll discuss how procurement functions and teams can work better and more effectively by considering programme management issues such as planning, prioritising, recording and reporting – and by moving beyond Excel as the primary means to manage the team’s activities.
