Forecasting 3 Major Procurement Trends for 2019

In 2018, we heard a LOT about tariffs, the blockchain, Brexit, trade wars with China, natural disasters and labor shortages. As we look ahead to 2019, there’s a good chance we’ll continue to hear about those topics. How can you be proactive and tackle these issues head-on? What will really matter to your stakeholders and your supply chain in the coming year 

In this webinar, you’ll learn: 

  • Why it’s time to be proactive about risk management – wait & see is no longer an option 
  • How sustainability and corporate social responsibility will affect how you manage your supply chain 
  • Why automation is here to stay and how it will affect the procurement profession
