About this Session

For too long, procurement has been seen as the poor second cousin of other business functions. To truly become strategic, procurement executives must be able to harness the power of influence, using data and analytics to create a business case and be able to sell the value of what strategic supply management can achieve for the business and for the customer.

This one-of-a-kind executive development program is designed specifically to provide high-potential procurement leaders with the tools and strategies needed to make dramatic improvements to their organization’s procurement practices in the digital age.

Through this program, participants will learn modern procurement strategies and frameworks, as well as how to assess current conditions for the purpose of choosing and implementing a strategy that will provide the greatest potential for added economic value and competitive advantage.
