WILLOW GROVE, PA, May 02, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The spend management experts at premier procurement services provider Source One Management Services will share their insights as featured speakers during the Institute for Supply Management's Annual Conference, taking place May 6-9 in Nashville, TN. In addition to serving as sponsors and exhibitors, members of Source One's expert team join the event's impressive list of presenters to discuss how companies can effectively transform procurement's operations.
On Day 4 of the conference, Source One Director Diego De la Garza will co-host Overcoming Procurement's Internal Image Problem. Alongside Global Business Consultant Donna Chappas, De la Garza will offer actionable tips for changing the conversation surrounding Procurement, communicating the value of more proactive purchasing, and transforming the department into a strategic business partner.
Overcoming Procurement's Internal Image Problem is inspired by much of the procurement transformation work De la Garza leads with Source One's clients. The session will draw upon his experience helping procurement groups evolve their organization and maximize their impact by changing stakeholder perceptions of the function.
"Too many companies still associate Procurement with little more than cost-cutting and budget policing," says De la Garza. "This image problem is perhaps the primary roadblock keeping Procurement teams from growing and realizing their full value proposition. During this session, we'll discuss strategies for effectively engaging stakeholders and building a positive brand identity that will unlock Procurement's potential."
In addition to hosting thought leadership sessions at ISM2018, Source One returns to the year's premier supply management event as the exclusive sponsors of ExecIn. Reserved for senior-level supply chain professionals, this private sub-conference features an additional selection of expert-led panels and networking opportunities. The two-day event will also enable Procurement innovators to attend private sessions hosted by the Annual Conference's keynote speakers: General Keith Alexander, John Brennan, Arianna Huffington, and John Rossman.
ISM2018 attendees are also invited to visit Booth #729 to learn more about Source One's efforts to rebuild Procurement's image and drive the future of supply chain management.
