The last full week of September is going to be a busy one. There are 12 webinars taking place in three days and ProcureCon Indirect West will take place Monday through Wednesday in Scottsdale, AZ. A few of our good friends will be there, including Greg Tennyson, Michael Shaw, Joanna Martinez, Phil Ideson, and Bill Michels.

If you’re looking to plan your webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend RPA -  The BIG Picture 2018 from IRPA AI and Virtual Operations on October 10th at 12n 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.

 

The Future of Procurement: Why is Technology Lagging Behind? (ATK, IACCM, SirionLabs, Forbes)

September 25th, 11am ET

Despite how much progress procurement technology has improved over the years, the fundamental approach to designing it hasn’t – until now. In this webinar, four speakers (representing the analyst, industry, functional, and technology perspectives) will address the shift in procurement technology design made possible by the rise of AI and blockchain. Key benefits include increased user adoption and improved big picture procurement effectiveness.

 

How CFOs Drive Growth and Reduce Risk Through Digital Transformation (Coupa)

September 25th, 2pm ET

While marketed to CFOs rather than procurement, this webinar is a great opportunity for procurement to improve our understanding of the corporate ‘why?’ behind our spend management goals and objectives. Topics include increased visibility, better managed risk, and expanded competitive advantage. Sound familiar? I thought so too.

 

 An Expert's Take: Why You Need Software To Manage Your Freelancers (Spend Matters, WorkMarket)

September 27th, 1pm ET

My interest in this event is twofold: 1. Corporate workforces are changing, and as procurement teams spend an increased percentage of our time managing services, we need to be up on the latest methods and best practices. 2. I’m a freelancer, and let me tell you – I’m keenly aware of the challenges large companies face when trying to leverage my unique and valuable capabilities. Andrew Karpie will share his thoughts on how freelance management systems can make things easier in a dynamic workforce environment.
