Each week I attend two or three webinars. Usually, I pick the most interesting event to share in this Friday webinar notes post. This week, there were two events on procurement transformation: one from Procurement Leaders/CombineNet/Kellogg and another from Sourcing Interests Group/Zycus/Capgemini. Both were good events in their own right, but combining what I heard in the two events provides a rich look at one of the hottest trends in procurement today.
Every one of us has been impacted by a merger or acquisition. The day after my husband and I closed on our first house, he was told his position was being eliminated due to a merger. My response was at least they waiting until after the closing went through!!
When I was reading this blog about mergers and acquisitions, it brought to light some areas where procurement can step in and show their value.
