Before I move into my event recommendations for this week, I want to look back at last week – Art of Procurement Mastermind LIVE was amazing, and it would not have been possible without the energy and expertise of many speakers and organizers. Thank you to everyone who joined us!
If you are planning your procurement webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend “How to Avoid Strategic Sourcing Pitfalls and Drive Savings by Integrating Technology and Process” from Coupa and Nitor Partners on October 29th.

For all our investments in procurement process digitization, many companies have overlooked the need to do the same for accounts payable. Then the pandemic hit, and we were suddenly aware of the hard copy constraints of processing supplier invoices and issuing payments. The digital transformation of AP is being jumped to the head of the line. In this webinar, Hackett analyst Nicolas Walden, Peter Hamilton from DXC, and Mike Jud from Tradeshift will talk about the future potential of “touchless” accounts payable.

Do you have strong enough relationships with your suppliers to prevent value leakage, even in times like these? That is the focus of this event based on new Procurement Leaders research. Procurement Leaders analyst Alex Johnston, Alex Saric CMO at Ivalua, and Alex Zimmerman from Baylor Scott & White Health will share real life lessons learned from procurement implementation and the common barriers to implementation.
