ALL STAR PANEL: HOW TO MEASURE AND REPORT PROCUREMENT’S TRUE IMPACT

For many enterprises, the number one procurement performance metric is still cost savings. And without a doubt, it will remain key. But far too many procurement teams give themselves short shrift on a wider range of meaningful metrics and thereby fail to demonstrate their true impact on the enterprise. Hear the best way to measure and report procurement savings and learn what changes procurement teams must make in the savings reporting methodology to reflect their true performance and contribution to their company’s bottom line.

Words from our attendees
  • A very informative and insightful day. Would highly recommend this event to any progressive procurement professional/organisation

    - David Golding - Head of Procurement, JLL
  • I just wanted to say congratulations on a great event and thank you all for your help, especially Ceri and Sarah who have spent time in advance and at the event with me to help me get the most out of the days here.I have really enjoyed the event, and made some good new contacts as well as insights into common challenges we are all facing in the CIO community. It’s been run superbly so thank you, and I look forward to the future events.

    - John Nother - Group CIO, Card Factory
  • "Another concise, factual and easy to follow course. Presentation was very good.” - Margaret Wearing (ATT)

  • I thought the quality and mix of contributions and the engagement from the audience was excellent. 

    It felt more like an interactive team exercise in some respects, than a sit back and listen conference, and for me was more enjoyable and genuinely helpful for that. Similar folks, passionate about their brands and their work, but with different best practice to share – very collaborative, which I personally like.

    So all good and thanks for the chance to take part. It’s always a drain on time, which none of us have, but it was worth it.
     

    - Tim Sinclair - Marketing & Retail, Alrayan Bank
