Procurement & Strategic Sourcing Forum

PGA National Resort & Spa, Palm Beach Gardens, FL

December 5–7, 2021

The acceleration of technological and process advancements have magnified the impact of procurement and strategic sourcing leaders.

An increasingly efficient global marketplace offers procurement and strategic sourcing executives with a growing series of opportunities to boost corporate value. But the modern economy offers risks that require just as much attention.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Approaching the Crossroads of Risk and Culture: How does the Chief Procurement Officer Influence Culture?
  • The Lifecycle of a Chief Procurement Officer
  • Measuring Performance and Making Sense of Metrics
  • Talent Today: Practical Tips for Attracting, Developing, and Retaining the Right People
  • The Importance of Supplier Diversity and its Impact on Departmental Success
  • The Digital Transformation Journey: Successes & Failures
  • Best Practices for Managing Risk in the Supply Chain
  • Influencing Internally: Proving that your Procurement Department is Business-Critical
  • A Remote Workforce: Adapt or Bust
  • Social Responsibility: Fostering Sustainable and Ethical Procurement Processes
