The relationship between procurement and finance teams is often operational, frequently bland, and occasionally antagonistic. That’s not helping anyone. When you look at a business holistically, both parties need to work in harmony to reduce significant value leakage.
The finance department doesn’t just process payments, it underpins efficiencies and should be a foundation stone of procurement. But to achieve that, the right culture, tools and mindset need to be in place, as well as a shared understanding of each others’ pressures, pain points and incentives.
That’s why Supply Management Insider, in collaboration with Medius, has brought together a panel of procurement and finance experts to discuss this relationship and give all of us insight on how to improve. Join this live webinar and hear about:
what are the push backs between finance and procurement?
how can we change mindsets and work towards common goals?
what tools are going to help?
