The leading consultancy’s thought leaders and supply management experts will be lending their insights on Procurement Transformation, Metrics, and Reporting at upcoming annual industry events: the Next Level Purchasing Association (NLPA) Conference and Worldwide Business Research’s ProcureCon Pharma 2016.
The two sessions will cover the true value proposition Procurement and Strategic Sourcing (SS&P) groups offer the organizations they serve, as well as how these professionals can best demonstrate that value to key stakeholders.
