Recommended Webinars April 13-17: Third Party Health, Growing Great Companies, and the Best Approach to Data Analytics
If you want to attend a webinar about COVID-19, you have plenty to choose from. The reality is, every webinar about every topic is being either officially or unofficially reworked to reflect the world's short-term focus on the pandemic or longer-term projections about what may come next.
A word of caution about predictions: consider your own ‘visibility horizon’. How far into the future can you look and say with any level of certainty what will happen? Don’t assume that, just because someone seems authoritative, they have more information than you do. Take in all of the quality information you can, and then make your decisions locally.
If you are planning your schedule further ahead, another weekly webinar series just hit the calendar. Corcentric will host a webinar each Thursday for the next three weeks (starting on April 16th) focused on Navigating During Disruption.

If you have ever worked for a startup or a small company, you know that the early days of “procurement” and “contract management” aren’t much to talk about. As they grow, however, not having systems and processes in place can quickly become an impediment to growth and a source of risk.
