Usually when we talk about Corporate Social Responsibility, it is a warm and fuzzy feel-good conversation. In this webinar, LexisNexis will describe their robust news and intelligence capabilities in the context of the due diligence required to make sure that an attempt to ‘do good’ in the global supply chain doesn’t go bad.

This might sound like a fairly routine topic… until you find out that the webinar is being presented by Procurement Insights’ Jon Hansen. I work with Jon all the time, and there are a few things I can guarantee: 1. You never know what he’s going to say, 2. He doesn’t shy away from touchy subjects, and 3. He will be sure to bring the larger economic and business environment to bear on the evolution of procurement technology.

Procurement has changed and so has what the company needs from us. We talk about alignment with corporate objectives all the time. What this glosses over however, is that it isn’t our companies aren’t driving this change as much as the business world around them. Our executive teams are scrambling to respond to shifting conditions and procurement can either be a full team player or sit on the sidelines. Join Andrew Bartolini to get your checklist for the decade ahead.
