Bridging the Gap: Committing to Contract Compliance

Posted by Molly Wilson on Sep 11, 2018 8:58:35 AM

Imagine this common scenario:

The Strategic Sourcing group has spent hundreds of hours creating savings for the organization. All year you have heard about the forecasted savings, but when those negotiated dollars do not reach the P&L, questions arise over why the savings were not realized. What happened? 

Organizations can equip their sourcing professionals with several tools, such as creating standard terms and clauses to expedite the process and establishing an accessible contract repository (see previous blog "Retaining Value Through Contract Management for more information on these topics).

The Hidden Side of eProcurement

Posted by Molly Wilson on Oct 13, 2016 2:52:10 PM

That huge tree in your backyard has caught a disease and is infecting the surrounding trees.  It needs to come down. While it seems like a straightforward task, (all you have to do is grab an axe and a plaid shirt) in reality, there are so many details you have to consider - dust, falling branches, whether or not the tree is already leaning in one direction, how far the tree will fall - and this is all before you even pick up your axe to start chopping.
