Retail Isn’t Dying and Neither is Procurement!

Contrary to popular belief, retail isn’t dying - it’s evolving - and so is procurement’s role in the industry. Join ProcurementIQ as we look at challenges in the retail space and 3 key strategies to address them. As part of those strategies, we’ll discuss where procurement can step in to support multiple departments as retailers evolve to meet consumers’ demands and expectations.

Some topics we’ll touch on include:

  • Other disruptions to brick and mortar stores besides e-commerce
  • How competitors are teaming up to satisfy consumers and why procurement will be critical to forming strong partnerships
  • Why experimenting could bring success and how you can support departments ready to take new risks
