Many industries are in the throes of dramatic transformation. With this pressure facing all organizations, how can procurement contribute? What does this mean for supplier management and collaboration?

In 2017, our partners State of Flux explored what it means to be an SRM entrepreneur. Learn how procurement leaders are stepping further ahead, bringing alternative forms of value to their businesses. Value-driven procurement is a hot topic within the procurement sector as it’s widely accepted that it is no longer enough to deliver savings alone.

8 in 10 companies actively seek innovation from suppliers; 90% of leaders have a value proposition for SRM but only 40% of other businesses do.

Join us for this webinar as we explore what it means to be an SRM entrepreneur and where the 2017 SRM global research results will be shared. Don’t forget to prepare any questions that are relevant, as at the end of the webinar you will have the opportunity to present them to the speaker.
