Connected Planning for financial outcomes and sustainability

Is your procurement team involved in strategic corporate decisions and plans from their inception? If procurement wants an active role in planning and execution to improve financial outcomes, they need to be a fully connected and collaborative partner to the business.

Because of their responsibilities and visibility into the supply chain, procurement is well-suited to participate in planning conversations that connect multiple functional stakeholders and multiple tiers of external supply partners. This requires understanding and articulating the cost and revenue impacts of business decisions in the immediate term, as well as forecasting future implications. With the right vision, this combination of activities and capabilities drives improved outcomes and increased accountability.
