Professor Dani is the author of ' Food Supply Chain Management and Logistics: From Farm to Fork' which recently won the 'Prix des Associations' awards at the 12th annual procurement 'Plumes des Achats' awards in Paris. I had the opportunity to interview him on BMP Radio, and was as fascinated by the topic as I was impressed by his command of it. If you see this post in time to register and attend his webinar, I highly recommend it!
February 10th, 1pm EST
This month’s SIG Townhall teleconference features Clyde Dornier, Senior Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer at The Freeman Company. As always, these events can only be attended by buy-side participants. If you happen to be sell-side, you can have a partial experience by reading the article it is based on, “The Change Agent: Should we Kill 'em or Support 'em?” Change is hard – evidenced by how rarely it succeeds. In this open floor discussion, Dornier will talk about The nature of change and why it can cause problems, The ways organizations deal with change, and Lessons learned about change management in the transformation of Procurement functions.

Can a network be worth more than the sum of its parts? That is exactly what Ardent Partners will discuss on Wednesday’s webinar. Procurement isn’t the only group in the organization looking to enhance their B2B processes – AP stands to gain a lot from investing in this as well. In this webinar, Andrew Bartolini will talk about how AP can leverage supplier networks to improve the efficiency, accuracy, and visibility of their processes.
