Two things I like about the subject of this webinar: 1. It puts procurement and finance squarely (and productively) on the same team, and 2. It recognizes the fact that while we need to manage risk and compliance, we can’t be overly strict with process and governance if we want broad internal cooperation.

If you were going to attend a webinar on the need to ensure the success of P2P implementations over the long term, who would you want to be the featured speaker? Well, if you answer involves the guy who has (loudly) questioned P2P implementation success in general, and who has (repeatedly) pointed out that we always get a press release at project launch but never at the point of successful completion, you are in luck. That guy (and good friend) Jon Hansen is taking on exactly that topic in this webinar.

The prevailing feedback I hear from the stakeholder side of the procurement equation is that they want procurement to move faster and they want to be more independent. This webinar puts both of those desires at the heart of world-class procurement, including real time visibility, self-service capabilities, and vastly improved user friendliness.
