Are you looking for a little bit of advice or counseling on how to improve the quality and stability of your professional relationships? In this webinar, Jon Hansen (Procurement Insights) will discuss the investments that need to be made before you can start trying to improve communication and collaboration, namely the true interests and priorities of the other parties we are working with.

If solid spend analysis data serves as the foundation for everything else procurement does, then trying to move forward without it is like building a house on the sand. In this webinar, Denali will share their perspectives on fostering effective spend analysis and overcoming bad data. It seems valid to point out that even after the WNS Denali/Procurability split, Denali is still a service provider – so no worries that this webinar will divert to a spend analysis demo.
