Webinar: Innovative Data Leveraging for Procurement Analysis

webinar description

This webinar will explore the types of problems and questions faced by procurement executives that can benefit most through the application of analytical solutions (e.g. innovation, strategic cost management, risk mitigation, etc.). In addition, we will cover the different forms of cognitive solutions that are emerging to drive real-time decision-making and predictive sourcing capabilities.

- Head of Procurement

"I've been able to apply new found knowledge from the series immediately in my workplace which has helped me to make measurable performance improvements for the team. From a personal perspective, I've reaffirmed and built upon academic foundations as I was in my final year studying towards MCIPS."
