CHICAGO, IL, September 25, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On October 10th, members of Corcentric's Source-to Pay-team, Sales Director Sophie Pope and Director Diego De la Garza, will travel to Stockholm, Sweden as sponsors for Sourcing Outlook 2019. Hosted by e-Business Guide AB (EBG) Network, the one-day event offers Supply Management executives from across the globe with opportunities to network and absorb insights on topics including professional development, global risk, and change management. Pope and De la Garza will also lead an interactive round table discussion focused on designing a digital Procurement Transformation roadmap.
"New solutions," says De la Garza, "have made it even more important for Procurement teams in every industry to transform their spend management approach. Unfortunately, technology doesn't always make managing procurement processes easier. It often does the exact opposite by giving organizations unrealistic expectations. In worst case scenarios, they lose sight of other critical factors and end up abandoning their transformation initiatives mid-stream."
Technology, Pope and De la Garza contend, is worthless if organizations don't attend to Procurement's people and processes. Throughout their discussion, they'll outline detailed case studies and offer best practices for developing strategic objectives, prioritizing effectively, and building an actionable framework for transformation. They intend to provide EBG attendees with everything they'll need to optimize each pillar of Procurement and enter the new digital era with confidence.
Pope and De la Garza's presentation is just one of the several dozen interactive, high-impact sessions that make up Sourcing Outlook 2019's agenda. Other topics of discussion will include sustainable sourcing, agile Procurement operations, and the incalculable power of data. The session's moderators represent industry-leading organizations such as Volvo and Maersk.
The Source One team will also discuss Procurement's tech-empowered future at Consero's Procurement and Strategic Sourcing Forum in December. Moderating a panel on strategically approaching tail spend, they'll look at the ways Source-to-Pay solutions are finally providing for true spend management. Read Source One's blog, the Strategic Sourceror, for updates on both conferences.
