IACCM Thought Leadership Webinar -- "Procurement as a Strategic Function" with Tim Cummins

Procurement as a function is once again at a dramatic inflection point. As traditional sourcing techniques become increasingly outdated, the meaning of 'strategic' has shifted, and best practices must evolve to align with new priorities. Correspondingly, procurement professionals must acquire new competencies to truly enable differentiation.

During this session, we will examine the impact of changing business conditions on the procurement marketplace, including public sector procurement. Tim will outline predictions regarding the future of the procurement function and the opportunity for Buy-side professionals to be the most important strategic leaders and value creators of the future.
