Summary

Procurement budgets have been steadily shrinking over the next decade, but procurement is being tasked to do more activities, more deeply, and with higher impact. The only way to do this without more resources is to improve your productivity and "do more with less".
 
Join Pierre Mitchell, Chief Research Officer at Spend Matters and sponsor, Hubwoo, on this compelling topic of doing more with less - a reality with procurement organizations today. As part of this webinar, ISM and Spend Matters will be taking a 5-10 minute "Snap Poll" designed to:
 
  • help extricate you from tactical purchasing to focus on strategic supply management
  • compare your productivity practices versus your peers and "top productivity" firms
  • use the study to build a case for change! 
 
Some of the results will be shared on the live webinar, and participants will receive a complimentary report of the poll findings along with additional benchmark data.
 
Please complete the poll no later than April 26th to be included in this study.  All study responses will be blinded and presented in the aggregate. To complete the poll, select the following link: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1223813/Doing-More-with-Less-in-Procurement-Snap-Poll
 
What you will learn:
  • How to do more with less
  • Improve productivity
  • Go from tactical purchasing to focus on strategic supply management
