Recommended Procurement Webinars for Dec 12 – 16: The Year All Comes Down to This…

We’ll be back starting January 9 to kick off a new year of webinar recommendations. If you haven’t already, sign up for our mailing list to be sure you get the weekly recommendations in your Inbox each Monday.

Let’s hope they are able to deliver and we get a balanced view of the potential changes to come rather than either celebration or despair.

In case you haven’t heard, HfS’ Phil Fersht just won the Institute of Industry Analyst Relations (IIAR) Analyst of the Year award and the HfS Research team won Independent Analyst Firm of Year.

According to the event description, keeping it real means they “will explore the experiences, dynamics, intentions, challenges and opportunities of thousands of enterprises in their quest to align their operations to meet the rapidly changing needs of their clients.”
