Many people are desirous of change in procurement – but change does not just happen. A leader has to step up, align people behind them, and push forward to make change a sustainable reality. In this webinar, Amir Ghannad a leadership & culture transformation coach and the founder of The Ghannad Group, will take participants through the characteristics of transformative leaders as well as the mindset and behaviors that are critical to the success of those leaders. Most importantly, participants will come away knowing where they want to begin a transformation of their own.

Last week I had the opportunity to speak with Constantine Limberakis, one of the speakers in this webinar, and he asked me a rhetorical question about my experience implementing and managing global contracts. I’m willing to bet that everyone – myself included – could use a little brush up on the latest thought leadership required to effectively handle global contracts in today’s complex business environment. Join Constantine and IACCM’s Tim Cummins, to better understand the commercial realities of 2017.

Whether you agree with the notion that 2016 sucked or not, there’s no reason NOT to be enthused for the promise of 2017. And yet… it is part of procurement and supply chain’s job to look for risk in the general business landscape, understand how it will affect our operations, and prepare to address it. In this webinar, Jason Busch and Pierre Mitchell will share their point of view on the top supplier-related risks for the new year in time for the rest of us to increase our awareness and put solid plans in place.
