How Can Procurement Optimize its Approach to Talent?

Spend Management experts will discuss recruitment, training, and retention at ISM2019 and the ExecIn Forum.

    WILLOW GROVE, PA, April 02, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Of all the challenges facing today's Procurement leaders, recruiting and retaining talent is perhaps the most pervasive. It is expected to inspire dozens of conversations at the Institute for Supply Management's Annual Conference next week. Source One's spend management experts will share their thoughts on the subject with executive-level conference attendees at the ExecIn Forum.

Hosted and sponsored by Source One, the ExecIn Forum is a private two-day networking opportunity for Supply Chain executives. In addition to private presentations from ISM2019's keynote speakers, it will feature an interactive session on talent management titled 'Building the Perfect Team.'

Source One Director David Pastore will kick off the discussions with a short presentation on the value of consistency in leadership.

"Every Procurement leader," Pastore says, "wants to establish a culture of consistent improvement. In pursuing that goal, we ask a lot of our teams. I wonder if we're asking enough of ourselves. I want to encourage ExecIn attendees to honestly reflect on their leadership style and determine how they can build a team where consistent feedback, consistent challenge, and a consistent sense of purpose inspire growth."

The value of new leadership styles is something of a theme for this year's ExecIn Forum. Like Pastore, Moderator Jan Griffiths intends to provoke self-reflection and advocate for a more purpose-driven approach to talent management.

Source One's team will also share their insights at the Emerging Professionals Kickoff on April 7th. Consultants and Supply Chain Rising Stars Kaitlyn Krigbaum and Elizabeth Skipor will join other rising thought leaders to exchange insights and comment on the value of effective leadership. Later in the day, ISM will formally recognize Krigbaum, Elizabeth Skipor, and the rest of this year's 30 Under 30 award winners.

Interested in joining Source One at ExecIn? Senior-level professionals from non-consulting organizations with at least $1.2 billion in annual revenue are encouraged to attend.
