Challenges You Might be Facing
Digitization of the procurement function is increasingly difficult to predict. On the one hand, we are seeing huge leaps in terms of opportunities, but outside transactional payment options, we are seeing relatively low adoption rates.
About the Seminar
To help guide your organization through the minefield of modernizing the procurement function, we have assembled a selection of expert professionals that will discuss how they plan to lead their organizations into the next 3-5 years.
Some of the key takeaways you can expect will include:
- The myriad ways procurement can deliver more robust cost savings to their organization, from spend consolidation to operational efficiencies and reduced capital expenditures
- Strategies and solutions to mitigate risks, such as global trade, natural disasters, and cyber security
- How to achieve greater supply chain transparency, including analysis beyond tier 1 suppliers
- Success factors for winning the war on talent through better training and capitalizing on the newest skill sets needed to excel in procurement
- Case studies in shifting from traditional to agile, building capacity, lowering costs and improving stakeholder satisfaction and success
- Insights on how to become a high performing procurement operation, and how digitalization, training, leadership, and collaboration together fuel bottom-line growth
We will also provide technological updates and use studies on digital strategies, including:
- Analytics, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Chat bots, AI, Machine learning
- Tech-enabled pay options, spend tools, automation, and data integration
- Cyber security and ransom ware
- Blockchain, real-time supply-chain monitoring, IoT, and their role in supply chain transparency and efficiency
