After a clear events calendar last week, we’re back – and with five events to choose from! I’ve also started adding some great events for September, including AI and manufacturing, next generation operating models, and community intelligence. Take a look and get something in your schedule to start the fall off right.
If you’re planning a little further out, I recommend “Securing the Internet of Things” from SIG and Mayer Brown on September 25th at 1pm ET.
BTW: If you haven’t already, sign up for our mailing list to be sure you get my weekly recommendations in your Inbox each Monday.

Having a digital strategy for procurement is critical for teams working to lead transformation – but with anyone and everyone seizing on this popular buzz phrase, how can we make sure our time will be well spent? I can think of no speaker better qualified to address the topic of digital strategy and transformation than Bertrand Maltaverne. His unique perspective and focus on disruptive applications will be sure to start your mind enthusiastically churning on the opportunities at hand!

Procurement has long struggled to identify and implement KPIs that accurately and fairly capture our contributions to operational health – and that’s a strictly internal challenge. Add to that the complexity of global markets and the risk they expose our supply chains to, and a straightforward calculation for savings seems even more inadequate. Join my good friend Jon Hansen and a panel of speakers as he leads a dynamic and engaging discussion about ROI-driven procurement KPIs.

I’d also like to invite you to join me as I sit on a panel of speakers coming together to address how AP can limit risk and reduce ‘costs’ by embracing a series of process, priority, and technology changes. My fellow panelists include Richard Porcaro (VP Procurement, ChainIQ), Dena Weinstein (Global Controller, Tradeshift), and Andy Moir (Senior Product Marketing Manager, Tradeshift).
