- Top cost saving initiatives for indirect procurement
- Third-party advisors who can help procurement professionals identify operational best practices and execute programs
- The HR technology landscape and the most useful technologies for managing contingent labor across various engagement types--from temporary workers to service procurement
- Emerging technologies that can be used today and which ones to watch for future use
- Using big data/analytics to make strategic business decisions
Findings from the Working Group will serve as the basis for a Webinar featuring Sergott that is scheduled for March 26, 1:00 p.m. ET.
