I would once again like to welcome from Buyers Meeting Point to share information of this week's events and news from the world of purchasing, Kelly Barner.
NOTE: This week's recommended events are from Rosslyn Analytics (technological breakthroughs in spend analytics), SAP/Ariba and Ardent Partners (CPO Rising 2015), and Zycus and Hackett Group (P2P process measurement). In this week's guest audio, Kevin Lecompte of the Gap Partnership provides a very interesting perspective on the negotiation skills needed by procurement in today's more collaborative business climate.
