2:10 PM What Comes After Sourcing: Analytical Strategies For Preserving & Optimizing Savings

After analyzing over $2 trillion in spend data for hundreds of diverse companies, Insight Sourcing Group has identified a troubling data point for procurement leaders: on average, organizations are only achieving 50 - 60% of their projected savings.  We often hear that a CFO’s biggest complaint about their procurement group is “They tout big savings but I don’t see it in the P&L.”  We all know that there are many reasons for this, but our observations in the data suggest that—in some cases—their concerns are legitimate. 
 In this roundtable discussion, we’ll discuss:
•             The root cause of savings leakage
•             Leveraging analytics to track, preserve, and enhance sourcing-related savings
•             Data-driven techniques to unlock 2-5% in additional post-sourcing savings annually
