Date: July 7, 2020
Time: 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CT


Chris Sawchuk
Christopher Sawchuk, Principal & Global Procurement Advisory Practice Leader | The Hackett Group

Chris Sawchuk has over 20 years of experience in supply management, working directly with the Global 2000 and mid-sized companies across a variety of industries to improve all dimensions of source-to-settle, including human capital, technology, organization & governance, analytics & information management, process/service design and service partnering.




Historically, procurement’s value has been measured in 2 fundamental ways: savings and delivery. Today, a combination of disruption, changing social priorities, and the emergence of the digital era are evolving and augmenting the way procurement is valued and measured. Increasingly, organizations are working to be more agile and more customer centric and enabling those objectives through digital transformation. This webinar will focus first on where procurement organizations are today and why they need to evolve.  Second, where does procurement need to go and what new activities do they need to engage in to create new value streams. Third, how does procurement get there along with insights into bringing visibility to these activities.
