Event Summary

In the drive for greater savings and improved efficiency in procurement we have spent recent years acquiring new software tools and developed new processes all of which are supposed to see us in a new world of results and value.   But, perhaps the procurement operation today is not what we had hoped for when we made our plans.  Is it all the fault of the software, or the consultants or some of our basic assumptions fundamentally flawed?   In either case, what can and should be done, in developing the next generation of procurement solution, to deliver the real transformation we are seeking?
