This webinar will discuss the 2019 IACCM Benchmark Report. The report provides a wealth of data and insight to the current state of contract and commercial management. One of the many areas we have researched is to understand what major initiatives contracts and commercial teams are currently undertaking. The list is very interesting - and the differences between buy-side and sell-side priorities even more so! Our report explains the implications and the reasons - along with a myriad of data regarding performance measurements, headcount levels, the state of automation, skills and knowledge management and a host of other topics.

Paul Branch, Chief Operating Officer, IACCM. Technology is changing the role of the Contract and Commercial Management (CCM) professional so that 60% of what we do today will be replaced by machines in the next 5 years. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. As a seasoned CCM professional, I've got practical experience of how to drive systemic change in people, systems, and processes to deliver real business value. That is what gets me excited every day.
