While indirect procurement organizations have often been viewed as less mature than their direct procurement counterparts, indirect leaders — in the course of addressing the many complexities associated with their function — have learned many lessons that can be applied to direct procurement. While most direct categories are well-managed, they may still run into some of the same challenges that indirect spend is faced with.
In this webinar, experts from GEP and The Hackett Group will join SIG in exploring the possibilities for direct procurement’s continued transformation — including those possibilities arising from leading-edge, AI-native procurement technology platforms, which have already helped drive indirect procurement toward greater effectiveness and business value creation.
On the Agenda:
- Goals, processes and challenges that direct and indirect procurement share
- Areas in direct spend that would benefit most immediately from technology-centered upgrades, such as supplier management and analytic tools
- The transformative potential of AI and automation for direct procurement
