Best Procurement and Supply Chain Webinars 11/23 – 11/27: A Veritable Feast of Talent and Value
I thought for sure that this week would be devoid of events – between last week’s early schedule and the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. on Thursday. To the contrary, there is a full slate of webinars on a series of hot procurement topics. Click on the title of each event below to view the full description in our events calendar and to connect to their registration pages.

Unlike the years in procurement’s past, bringing in new talent is no longer a matter of getting the best ‘leftovers.’ Strategic procurement leaders are actively building up the capabilities of their teams, both by bringing in the best recruits and adding to the skills of the current professionals. In this webinar, Charles Dominick, president of the Next Level Purchasing association, will discuss how to position your procurement organization for success – today and in the future.

Kudos to Zycus for the fancy vocabulary word they managed to incorporate in this event! I’ll admit I looked up rancorous for an exact definition: “characterized by bitterness or resentment.” I knew it didn’t mean happiness, but bitterness and resentment are strong words as well. In this webinar, Zycus will share with us how to fully and finally free ourselves from the manual frustration of past contract management.

If you are active anywhere on social media in procurement, you’ve almost certainly encountered Hal Good. His LinkedIn groups are large and active and he seems to be spreading the good word and sharing thought leadership on Twitter 24/7. In this webinar, he will talk about the importance of value creation with examples from hospitality, manufacturing, laboratory work and and construction. I’ve attended and presented on Procurify webinars, and you can expect this to be an informative and personally engaging interactive session.
