Can Finance and Procurement Initiatives Align?
Combining Strategic Cash Management and Procurement to Strengthen the Business
Air Date & Time
Tuesday, October 23, 2018 2:00 PM
Working capital initiatives, for the most part, are a finance or treasury-led initiative. However, when it comes to implementation and the long-term success, procurement is largely responsible for leading the execution. It’s a reality often overlooked by financial stakeholders and one that exposes a weak link in how companies implement working capital initiatives such as supply chain finance.
