November 8-12: Sustainability, Resiliency, Agility, and Supplier Experience


Did you know that I co-host a podcast called This Week in Business History with Scott Luton at Supply Chain Now? Every week we take turns telling stories of the people and inventions that moved us forward through time. This week I’m tracing the history of windshield wiper innovations from 1903 to the present – and it is more entertaining than you might expect! Click here to listen or to subscribe.

If you are planning your webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend “LOUBOUTIN - Partnering for Success”  from basware and Fluxym on November 17th at 10am ET.

How to use best-of-breed to create transparency and drive collaboration (Procurement Leaders, HICX)

November 11th, 11am ET

Here is the honest truth about the buyer-supplier dynamics we’ve all lived through over the last 18 months: if procurement doesn’t make some lasting changes to the supplier experience in return for everything they did to keep our companies moving through the pandemic, it is going to be apparent that were just being self-centered and opportunistic. Not a great look.
