If you are planning your virtual procurement event schedule beyond this week, I highly recommend that you look all the way to February of 2023 for Art of Procurement Digital Outcomes.

And now for this week’s recommendations… 


The Supply Chain Buzz livestream from Supply Chain Now

December 5th 12n ET

If supply chain had its own ‘morning zoo’ radio show, I imagine it would be a lot like The Buzz, a weekly LinkedIn livestream from Supply Chain Now.
