Congress: 15-16 March 2018

Learning to be agile in a world that is constantly changing is crucial.

In a hyperconnected, real-time streaming world, organizations often still interact and transact in analogue rather than digital. Adjusting to mass collaboration across departments and adopting a process for continuous innovation that scales are the core pillars for success now for procurement.

The 5th annual Americas Congress 2018 will be addressing all facets required to successfully accelerate functional and cross functional performance in this disruptive world.

Join the discussion alongside 200+ procurement innovators next March.
