Recommended Procurement Webinars Jan 28 – Feb 1: 2019 Trends and Predictions, Leadership Lessons Learned from 2018
If you have a tendency to look ahead to Friday every week, just a warning: Friday is the start of February. (What?) On the bright side, industry webinar hosts seem to have gotten back into the swing of things after the holidays, as I added 7 new webinars to the calendar this week.
If you are planning further in advance, I recommend 'The Psychology & Business Case for Workplace Organization' on Feb. 15th from Supply Chain Now Radio, Talent Stream, APICS Atlanta, and Beau Groover, Founder & President of The Effective Syndicate.

This webinar will be based on research done by The Hackett Group on procurement’s key issues, and will (unsurprisingly) focus on transformation, intelligent automation, and visibility.

In a different approach to looking at the year ahead, this webinar will introduce the likely impact of regulations and the speed of ecommerce in 2019. The team from Ardent Partners will address the concerns of both procurement and finance. Will they overlap or conflict? Only time will tell.
