Is your services procurement thinking bold enough?


Many buying organizations want to improve their approach to services procurement, but few know how best to do it.

Statement of Work (SOW) based business services are often procured in an inconsistent and fragmented way across an enterprise which in turn causes many services procurement programs to fail.
Instead of viewing SOW based services as purely a ‘block of spend to manage’ and narrowly focusing on visibility, control and cost reduction, you should be helping SOW engagement managers to get work done. This webinar describes an innovative Services Procurement program which is designed to do just that. If you would like to find out more about Services Procurement good practices read our Ultimate Guide to SOW Management here.
