This week’s webinar notes are from a May 23rd event hosted by BravoSolution (part of their 2017 Real World Procurement Series) and presented by Dr. Rob Handfield, Executive Director of the Supply Chain Resource Cooperative, and the co-author of The Procurement Value Proposition and a new title being released in June, The LIVING Supply Chain: The Evolving Imperative of Operating in Real Time. The webinar is already available on demand here.
Last week, Procurious ran a webinar on cognitive technology along with panelists from IBM, Cognitive Scale, and the Entrepreneur’s Fund. The webinar is available on demand as a free, 2-part course on Procurious. For more about the webinar, or to view it on demand, click here.
As you might expect, terminology and definitions were very important in this webinar. What is cognitive computing? How is it different than AI? And who, exactly, is Watson?
There are just days to go before the start of The Procurement Revolution, the 100% virtual, global, onlie, free event September 26-30. While a lot of the content will be available on demand and at your convenience, there are live daily sessions (webinar-style) that will provide you with the opportunity to engage in discussion with our Revolutionaries.

It seems like only a few weeks ago that Phil Ideson (Art of Procurement) and I first resolved to lead a global, virtual, multimedia, interactive event designed to help professionals the world over make a change - but we’ve actually been hard at work since late winter. As we work our way through the last two weeks before The Procurement Revolution becomes a reality, the time has come for everyone else to start getting ready too.
