DAY 1 - Monday, March 23, 2020 The Future Is Ours: Accelerating Digital Transformation In Your Organization (Practitioner Only)

10:30 AM Deep Dive Workshop 5: Culture Shock: Managing Expectations And Workload During An Acquisition

Given ongoing merger and acquisition activity, it’s a question of when (not if) you’ll encounter a similar circumstance in your own career. 

As procurement professionals, what are some best practices to consider when being acquired, meeting your ‘new’ team for the first time, and handling all the underlying contractual changes that go along with a merger/acquisition? Not to mention keeping your team’s morale up during this difficult time?

This workshop is critical for anyone undergoing a merger/acquisition or just wants some insight on what to expect in such a situation.

3:10 PM Boardroom: Gaining Leverage – Small Procurement Team Negotiation Strategies

Leading a small-midsize firm procurement team creates its own set of challenges and opportunities when it comes to managing suppliers. This session will go through the tools, techniques, and best practices needed to get the most of out your suppliers independent of your companies, size, and presence.
