Anti-fragile supply chain*, spend analytics on a digital network

We hear it; the world has changed, there is a new normal, but what do we do now to meet this challenge and the challenges to come?

As a spend team, a digital and data driven supplier network has become the new standard. This webinar will kickoff a series to highlight how Procurement teams can leverage real time spend analytics to deliver enterprise value, and create an anti-fragile supply chain. An anti-fragile supply chain anticipates the risks that can come in any direction, and learns so it can respond quickly under challenging circumstances.

In this on-demand webinar, you will hear from our speakers about:

  • What it means to have real time spend analytics on a network
  • How will it change how we manage spend, prioritize targets, and drive performance management
  • How should Procurement and Finance work together to develop and maintain a performing supplier network
  • Trends that emerged from recent events and the move to anti-fragile supply chains

This is an opportunity to explore with our panel a future that is moving to real-time, data-driven, and networked insights to create the anti-fragile supply chain.
