After a break for the Labor Day holiday, procurement and supply chain events are back with a vengeance! This is the time of year when we start counting the weeks left to have an impact – and the fall conference season is picking up as well. On September 21st, I’ll be at the riskmethods SCRM Summit in Boston, MA, so if you’re attending, be sure to come say hello!
If you are planning your virtual procurement event schedule beyond this week, I recommend ‘Could the Great Resignation Lead to BETTER Procurement Talent?’ from Art of Procurement and Corcentric on September 20th.
And now for this week’s recommendations…

In procurement, we have source-to-pay (S2P) and procure-to-pay (P2P). At the same time, our colleagues in AP and Finance have order-to-cash (O2C). Guess what: their “O” is our “P” and given the number of AP and procurement teams who should be working closely together to bolster the cash situation of the company, the O2C process is important to understand. Join JB Bernicke, Management Consulting Senior Principal at Accenture, and Sam Dhingra, VP Digital Transformation and Business Development at HighRadius, for more!
