Roadmap to Savings: Partnering with the Business to Drive Progress
Tuesday October 5th @ 11am US Eastern Time
There are multiple ways for procurement to achieve savings - and some are more collaborative than others. The more planful they can be about the overall process, the more opportunities they can create to work arm-in-arm with the business in pursuit of those savings.
Many companies are currently going through the budgeting process for 2022, which means that conversations about where to find savings have already started or will begin very soon. Questions like ‘Where will the savings come from?’ and ‘What will we have to give up to get them?’ abound, but there is one question that rises above all the rest: ‘What will happen to the savings - will they be clawed back from our budget or we will get to reinvest them in strategic efforts?’ The answer to that particular question can make or break savings potential.
In this AOP Live session, Joe Payne, SVP of Source-to-Pay at Corcentric will be joined by Dave Quillin, Senior Manager of Procurement at Alliant Credit Union (ACU), who will share his company’s unique and productive approach to delivering savings. ACU recently appointed a new CEO - someone who happens to have a background in sourcing. As Dave explains, ‘He gets it.’
Joe and Dave will share their lessons learned in pursuit of savings and answer your live questions about:
- How procurement can work with leadership to not only incentivize savings, but to minimize compliance problems as well
- Ways that procurement can increase their category-specific credibility with the business
- The critical step of defining - or redefining - addressable spend
- How to build and execute a sourcing roadmap to ensure annual savings targets are met
- Resources available to help meet savings goals
