SIG and Everest Group have partnered to provide SIG members with insights and analysis to help them capture greater value from their contracts and provider relationships.

SIG members gain practical knowledge from the insights our research leaders offer in session presentations at Regional SIGnature Events and Global Summits, including findings from Pinnacle Model™ studies – proprietary research that identifies and details what the best, or Pinnacle, enterprises are doing to achieve exceptional outcomes through their sourcing strategies. These sessions share practices you can take back and put into practice to accelerate time to value.

We invite SIG members to participate in our Pinnacle Model studies and, in return, receive exclusive executive summaries.


Can you help crack the innovation code?

The accelerating pace of change in business today makes innovation a vital competency in all functions – and procurement and sourcing are not exceptions. Everest Group, SIG, and SIGInnova are joining forces to explore sourcing innovation, and we need your help.


We’ll be looking at inventive practices and technologies are yielding the best outcomes for the procurement function and more specifically in areas such as spend management, sourcing strategy development, and supplier selection and management, among others.

The study will examine:

  • The innovative procurement and sourcing practices that Pinnacle Enterprises™ (or the best performers) are adopting, and the capability changes needed to succeed
  • Which innovative practices are yielding the best results
  • How technology innovations are changing enterprises’ sourcing practices and the practices being adopted to create value while also managing sourcing risk

How will this research help you?

We will share a complimentary summary analysis of survey results, which will show you how your peers – and Pinnacle Enterprises – are introducing innovations in sourcing…and which are getting the best results.

About survey participation

  • The online survey will take about 20 minutes of your time – but does not require any preparation or special data collection
  • All information you provide will remain confidential and will be presented only in aggregate form
  • Multiple respondents from the same enterprise can complete the survey; please feel free to forward this email to other relevant stakeholders within your organization
