January 16-20: 2023 Procurement Trends, Predictions, and Outlook


In this week’s webinars, ‘outlook season’ continues. Everyone has a perspective to share on what they think the coming year will bring. Personally, I find this quite endearing – especially given all of the disruption and uncertainty of the last three years. Human hope for predictability springs eternal! 

If you are planning your procurement event schedule beyond this week, I have another set of predictions to offer you: Forecasting the Future: Executive Predictions for 2023. Join Rujul Zaparde, Founder and CEO of Zip, and Colin Glazier, VP of Solutions Consulting at Zip, as they take the virtual stage with Philip Ideson for the first AOP Live of 2023!

And now for this week’s recommendations…

Join RedThread Research co-founders Dani Johnson and Stacia Garr as well as Cristina Goldt, GM of Talent Optimization at Workday, as they talk about high level trends and how ‘people functions’ should respond.


The Procurement Outlook for 2023 – Risk, Digitisation and ESG (Proactis)

January 19th, 6 am ET

If hearing from Peter Smith isn’t enough reason for you to get up early for some 2023 trends, maybe this will be: Peter has written a new whitepaper and everyone who registers will receive a copy. Tune in for his thoughts on managing risk, digitization, and ESG in 2023.


Demystifying Autonomous Sourcing: Concepts, Drivers and Enablers (Fairmarkit)

January 19th, 1:30 pm ET

Is the world ready for autonomous sourcing? Maybe – but first we have to define what that really means!
