Source One Analyst Kaitlyn Krigbaum Will Offer Best Practices for Boosting Procurement's Impact at ISM2018
March 20, 2018 (Willow Grove, PA) – On May 7th, Source One Procurement Analyst Kaitlyn Krigbaum will join the impactful agenda of guest speakers during the Institute for Supply Management’s Annual Conference, co-hosting a session titled, Orchestrating a Procurement Transformation: A Symphony of Recruiting, Branding, and Leading. Joined by MRA Global Sourcing’s Nick Lazzarra and QBE’s Scott Ottenheimer, she’ll leverage her Strategic Sourcing experience to offer solutions for developing, maintaining, and marketing a world-class Procurement team.
Since 1992, the Procurement and Strategic Sourcing experts at Source One have taken a uniquely forward-thinking approach to their spend management services. The supply chain specialists promoted more nuanced, strategic, and value-adding purchasing habits at a time when Procurement was a purely tactical and reactive function for most organizations. Today, their consultants are recognized as industry leaders in the burgeoning field of Procurement Transformation. They are uniquely equipped to provide Procurement optimization tips at the Institute for Supply Management’s Annual Conference.
“Procurement is the perfect department to communicate and implement a vision for change across companies,” says Krigbaum. “Within many organizations, however, Procurement struggles to attract and empower the supply management talent necessary to gain executive buy-in and drive strategic initiatives. We hope to provide procurement transformation strategies that will not only narrow the talent gap, but ensure Procurement effectively communicates its value and accepts its rightful leadership position. ”
In addition to offering spend management insights as guest speakers during ISM2018, the Procurement optimization team will also host and sponsor the exclusive ExecIn forum. ExecIn is a private, executives-only event taking place during the Annual Conference. Featuring a customized agenda designed for procurement and supply chain leaders including premier thought leadership sessions from industry experts and unique networking opportunities.
ISM2018 attendees are also invited to visit Booth #729 to learn more about the Procurement Services Provider’s unique value proposition and innovative approach to supply chain management.
