Digital Procurement Experts Share Insights for Mapping a Transformation at the EBG Sourcing Summit
Willow Grove, PA (September 24, 2019) – On October 10th, members of Corcentric’s Source to Pay team, Sophie Pope, Sales Director and Diego De la Garza, Director will travel to Stockholm, Sweden for Sourcing Outlook 2019. Hosted by e-Business Guide AB (EBG) Network, the one-day event provides Supply Chain executives from across the globe with countless opportunities to network and absorb new insights on topics including professional development, global risk, and change management. Pope and De la Garza will lead an interactive round table discussion focused on designing a Procurement Transformation framework.
“New technologies,” says De la Garza, “have made it even more important for Procurement groups of all shapes and sizes to transform their operations. Unfortunately, technology doesn’t always make things easier. It often does just the opposite by giving organizations unrealistic expectations. In worst case scenarios, they lose sight of other critical factors and wind up abandoning their transformations mid-stream.”
Technology, Pope and De la Garza contend, is useless if organizations don’t attend to Procurement’s people and processes. Throughout their discussion, they’ll provide detailed case studies and offer best practices for developing strategic objectives, prioritizing effectively, and designing an actionable Procurement Transformation Roadmap. They intend to provide EBG attendees with everything they’ll need to optimize each pillar of Procurement and confidently enter the new digital era.
Pope and De la Garza’s discussion is just one of the several dozen interactive sessions that make up Sourcing Outlook 2019’s agenda. Other topics of discussion will include sustainable sourcing, agile Procurement operations, and the power of data. The session’s moderators represent industry-leading organizations such as Volvo and Maersk.
The Source One team will also discuss Procurement’s tech-enabled future at Consero’s Procurement and Strategic Sourcing Forum in December. Moderating a panel on tail spend management, they’ll look at the ways Source-to-Pay solutions are finally providing for true spend management.
