It’s not often that we get to have Peter Smith of Spend Matters UK joining us on a webinar, so we’re putting the word out early. On Wednesday, June 5 from 11 AM to 12 PM CDT, Peter Smith (Managing Editor of Spend Matters UK/Europe), Jason Busch (Executive Editor, Spend Matters), and Richard Waugh (Zycus) will be discussing supplier management in the webinar Putting the Supplier at the Heart of Procurement.

Here’s what Peter has to say about it:
“Why Supplier Management? Well, there’s a lot of talk around at the moment about it as a topic, linked to the need for better information and data, risk management and the need to capture more from suppliers – not just value for money but innovation and contribution to the top line as well as the bottom. Indeed, we will be asking – is Supplier Management becoming more important than Category Management? Is it the long-awaited “next big thing” in procurement?
I’m going to be speaking, as is my esteemed colleague from Spend Matters US, Jason Busch, and Richard Waugh from Zycus. If you’ve heard Jason before, you will know he is always stimulating and often somewhat controversial – we’ll make sure there’s time for questions from participants as well.”
And here are some more reasons to spend an hour with Spend Matters UK/US and Zycus:
- Understand why Supplier Management is becoming more central to procurement thinking
- Learn how a supplier focus can help procurement and procurement people position themselves better within their organizations; and
- Gain understanding of some best practice principles in supplier management that organizations can implement
