Breakout 19: Sourcing and Procurement Has a Brand Vulnerability Problem

Wednesday, October 14, 2020 - 15:30

In a time of rapid, sometimes overwhelming change, the role of sourcing and procurement has never been more important to the overall success of an organization. Too bad, many businesses don't know that. Sourcing and procurement has a brand vulnerability problem. Business stakeholders are still thinking purchasing, contracting and bringing you in last minute, when it's really about strategic partnerships and multi-million-dollar profit improvement. You manage a significant amount of your company's money.  Critical, not just in savings, but in the net value and impact on the business. In other words, sourcing and procurement could and should be seen as a major advantage - with a seat at the table to influence the decisions driving success for your business. It's time to aim higher, take the lead, and elevate your impact.
