Webinar: Balancing Continuity and Change

Procurement’s Role in Transformation

webinar description

This is the practical paradox procurement teams face on a daily basis: how do we maintain continuity, while preparing the organization for the unexpected?

Fortunately, with a focus on collaboration, supplier performance, and a next-generation approach to sourcing it’s possible for even the most traditional of organizations to accelerate decision making, establish clear strategic sourcing practices, and break out of yesterday’s rigid routines.

Join Harry Lund, Program Leader of Strategic Procurement Operations, as he shares how a pharmaceutical company born in the 70’s has transformed procurement, improved supplier performance, and maximized business impact. Learn how this multinational Fortune 500 company leveraged collaboration to level up strategic sourcing and liberated itself from the constraints of their legacy systems.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Orchestrating change management across procurement and the enterprise

  • Training stakeholders and suppliers to effectively use a collaborative sourcing tool

  • Standardizing sourcing processes to maximize enterprise business impact

Who should attend:

Procurement and supply chain professionals with an interest in positioning their business to better navigate risk by partnering with suppliers
