Willow Grove, PA, April 03, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The spend management consultants of premier procurement services provider Source One Management Services are taking their expertise to the Institute for Supply Management’s Annual Conference. Members of the procurement consulting firm’s team will join an impressive lineup of ISM2018 guest speakers. On day two of the conference, which takes place May 6th-9th in Nashville, Source One Analyst Kaitlyn Krigbaum will co-host “Orchestrating a Successful Procurement Transformation: A Symphony of Recruiting, Branding, and Leading.”
The Procurement Transformation
-focused session captures the principles that have guided Source One’s spend management service offering over the last two and a half decades: moving Procurement forward as a strategic business unit. During the session, Krigbaum will explore the fundamentals of Procurement Transformation – specifically the importance of a strong organizational brand.
Drawing upon her experience working with internal and external stakeholder groups for a variety of procurement initiatives, Krigbaum will discuss how Procurement’s image affects its success supporting other business units. Additionally, she’ll offer attendees actionable ways to improve Procurement’s internal brand. Alongside Nick Lazzara, Procurement Recruiting Practice Lead at MRA Global Sourcing and Scott Ottenheimer, Vice President at QBE, Krigbaum will cover how supply management professionals can maximize their talent, sell the benefits of procurement and deliver sustainable value.
“Procurement is better equipped than any other department when it comes to fostering collaboration and implementing enterprise-wide strategies,” says Krigbaum. “Unfortunately, many Procurement teams still struggle to convey that value proposition, as well as attract and retain top talent. Gaining access to the right talent is the first step in turning Procurement into a true strategic partner. Scott, Nick, and I hope our insights will enable Procurement teams to bolster their recruitment efforts
and earn the confidence of leaders throughout their organizations.”
In addition to guest speaking during the ISM2018 Annual Conference, Source One also returns to the premier supply chain event as exclusive sponsors of ExecIn
. ExecIn is a private sub-conference experience reserved for senior-level supply management professionals. Source One will host supply chain and procurement executives for two days of learning and networking sessions aimed at addressing the supply management challenges of the future. ISM2018 attendees are also welcome to stop by booth #729 to learn about their Source One’s Procurement Transformation Advisory services and more.
