How to utilize a data-driven mindset to supercharge your procurement organization

Tuesday January 25th @ 11am US Eastern Time

The common legacy of procurement software is one of overpriced technology that no one uses (if they can avoid it). Procurement technology is perceived as a tool intended for process enforcement rather than enabling people.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

And yet... for all of procurement’s talk about wanting to change, it still seems as though the desire for a new approach is stronger outside of procurement than within. Before procurement can actively drive change for ourselves, through technology and analytics, we have to embrace a whole new mindset - one that creates a culture of insight by providing everyone in the organization with open access to actionable data. 

In this AOP Live session, Flavio Monteleone, an Expert Partner in Procurement at Bain & Company, and Heta Ruikka, Vice President of Product Management at Sievo, will take on the challenge of discussing ways for procurement technology to make the most out of its data:

  • Why procurement should embrace data and transparency, even when it hurts
  • How to actually leverage the dirty data trapped in your procurement systems
  • What is a data-driven mindset and how should procurement use it?
    • People - not tools - turn insights into action
    • How democratization of data empowers your organization
    • How to use data to build the trust required for collaboration
