For decades now we have been talking about in-house vs outsource delivery models polarising opinion between the DIY experts and the builders.

Yet today’s environment is forcing a genuine shift in mindset and attitude towards services relationships, shared services and enabling technologies. Make, buy, partner or acquire? Do we really care who does the work so long as it meets client expectations? Or will we revert to type once the pandemic dust settles?

Make, buy, partner, acquire. Join senior executives for a candid discussion about:

  • Sourcing: What's the winning operating model: GBS versus Outsourcing versus hybrid?
  • Data, processes, and automation: How we combine these powerful change agents?
  • People, data and change management: Are we ready to weave some magic?
  • Governance: Will we break down the silos, or are we just paying lip-service?
  • Digital Transformation: All talk or is it happening?

The mandate for procurement organizations is clear. Cost reduction and spend deflation alone no longer ensures success; creating value for the enterprise is equally and increasingly more important. Procurement needs speed, innovation, and the insights and intelligence to make this goal a reality. The result is an increase in urgency for companies to accelerate the digital transformation of sourcing and procurement capabilities to drive growth and value.

Despite the promising use cases, fewer than 5% of the emerging technologies (e.g., AI, ML, blockchain) initiatives within sourcing and procurement have scaled. Overall utilization and satisfaction around the use of transformational technologies in sourcing and procurement services continues to be minimal at best. We know that we need technology to survive and thrive, yet many are struggling to realize the anticipated benefits and potential that these technologies can provide.

Join leading sourcing and procurement executives for an engaging discussion and walk away with key actions you can take to:

  • How can we build data at the core of our operational processes?
  • How do we develop an ecosystem approach that brings us the best capabilities to address the
  • rising need for data, automation, and smarter processes?
  • Enterprise best practices on the road to OneOffice
