Last week, I had the opportunity to provide live commentary during the hybrid sessions at the Supply Chain Insights Global Summit, and this week Procurement Leaders is holding a hybrid event based in Boston, MA. That wouldn’t have been news a couple of years ago, but I take it as a good sign that we’re slowly crawling our way back towards some form of normalcy!
If you are planning your procurement webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend ‘Supplier Diversity: Advancing Together at Ahold Delhaize,’ an AOP Live session featuring Nancy Nicoll, VP of the Indirect Sourcing Center of Excellence at Retail Business Services, and Carl Freeman, VP and Campus Leader at ADUSA Distribution. Sign up here and join the live session on September 22 at 11am ET.
If you haven’t already, sign up for our mailing list to be sure you get my weekly recommendations in your inbox each Monday.
The importance of data quality in procurement digital transformation: Are you really paying attention to this issue? (Procurement Leaders, Creactives)
September 13th, 10am ET
We’re all so used to talking about problems with data quality that we’ve almost achieved acceptance – not something any organization or business leader should aspire to. In this webinar, join Francesco Buresti, Director of Networks and Heating BU at A2A, Adriano Garibotto, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Creactives S.p.A., and Alex Johnston, a Principal Analyst at Procurement Leaders. They will discuss how leaders are ensuring business success through efficient digital transformation and best practices for improving and leveraging data quality.
September 15th, 12n ET
Although this event is more (overtly) targeted to finance/supply chain leaders, procurement needs to be in on this conversation. Everest Group will share highlights from their 2020 Global CFO Survey 2020, supported by WNS, including concerns such as supply chain continuity and payment related issues that are altering supplier relationships with buyers.
