DAY 1 - Monday, March 23, 2020 The Future Is Ours: Accelerating Digital Transformation In Your Organization (Practitioner Only)
3:10 PM Panel: Challenging Assumptions On Traditional Spend And Savings Analysis: Does Another Model Make Sense?
As procurement professionals, specifically those within the indirect space, we know that spend data and related reporting takes up a valuable amount of our team’s time. Whether it be explaining to executives why our data doesn’t match the G/L, or is coded differently than the way A/P does it, etc.,
•Side A. The current method is broken. As Procurement professionals we should focus on Committed (Not Actual) Spend
•Side B. Traditional Spend Reporting should continue, and continue to be enhanced/improved upon.
4:20 PM Interactive Case Study: Challenging Assumptions On Category Experts: Why A Fungible Procurement Team Makes Sense
For years, procurement teams have been organized by defining your team by means of categories – but does that model even make sense anymore? The team at World Bank didn’t think so and came up with a more flexible model that allows them to meet stakeholder demand in a more effective manner. You’ll learn how the World Bank accomplished this feat and gain the know how to do the same at your own organization.
As a part of this session you’ll have an opportunity to create your own procurement team “manifesto” in an interactive exercise.
