Becoming a 'Commercial Powerhouse': Outsight, Innovation & Smart Contracting @ IACCM Americas Conference 2017
In today's highly competitive, value-conscious world, commercial differentiation is essential. Creative approaches to contract and relationship management are enabling more and more organisations to develop a 'commercial powerhouse' - adaptive, agile, collaborative and cost-effective.
Complex supply ecosystems demand new forms of contracting and the development of integrated business skills and functions. The future looks very different from the past, especially in the field of contracting and commercial management. Big data, analytics, cognitive software, portfolio management, behavioural economics, virtual negotiation ... The opportunities for transformation abound.
Commercial innovation is high on every agenda, as organizations race to streamline the way they form and manage trading relationships. It's time to join the action at IACCM's 2017 Americas Forum - the only event where you'll receive the information you need to ride the wave of change.
