Scout RFP is starting to pop up all over the events calendar these days (look ahead to June 6 if this webinar doesn’t work for you). In this event, they take on one of my favorite perspectives in all of procurement: acknowledging the complexity and risk of our global supply chains and then looking at the combined conditions as an opportunity for growth and differentiation.

In my opinion, contract management is quickly catching up with spend analysis to be tied for the dubious title of ‘most under-leveraged procurement solution’. In this webinar, Forrester will shine a spotlight on the risks that are created when contract data is not easily accessible and actionable.

Last week we had a great event with The Hackett Group, riskmethods, POOL4TOOL, and Lexis Nexis on supply chain risk hosted by ISM. If you happened to miss it, this is something of a second chance. Last week’s coalition (minus POOL4TOOL and Lexis Nexis) will reunite to talk about the importance of making proactive investments in supply chain risk. This event will focus on momentum, getting moving quickly and establishing a sustained pace of progress whether your goal is to put a supplier management platform in place or lead a new risk management initiative.
