8/12, 8am and 11am EDT
While the Internet of Things (or IoT) isn’t a straight procurement topic, it is a peripheral one that we should be familiar with. This is especially true in cases where procurement has demonstrated expertise in data and analytics within the enterprise. This event will combine knowledge about IoT system design as well as the business models that will be best positioned to seize and act upon the intelligence created as a result.
8/13, 2pm EDT
The fact that procurement organizations are increasingly being asked to manage outsourcing and contingent workforce projects underlines the fact that it is hard to find, recruit, hire, and retail the right talent. Given the wide range of skills and capabilities needed to create and sustain a competitive advantage today, multiple approaches will be needed to satisfy talent needs. Attend this event to learn more about the ‘talent mapping’ approach to determine specific needs and then match them to the right candidates.
