All projects have two sides: the technical side and the ‘people’ side. Both need to be actively managed for the project to be a success. The more people that will need to use a system in order to realize the intended ROI, the more investment the implementation project team needs to make in change management. It is critical to stress that focusing on compliance alone will not necessari...

eInvoicing might have been thought of as a ‘nice to have’ element of procurement technology – that is until the whole world was suddenly working from home, virtually overnight. Now, companies that did not transform their invoicing processes to get away from paper are struggling, and those that had already done so are reaping the digital rewards.

But can a historical record of purchase transactions provide the basis for strategic procurement in the age of digital transformation, automation, and real-time insights? In this episode o...

In the early 1980’s Peter Kraljic proposed his two-by-two matrix as a way of informing the B2B negotiating process. Back then, procurement nearly always approached supplier decisions with a three-bids-and-a-buy process and formulaic negotiating tactics. At the time, it worked because most companies were operating in relatively stable conditions. But does the Kraljic matrix still work...

Accounts payable (AP) processes are anything but efficient, mired in paper and manual labor. Waiting for the fax machine to break is no spur of change, either.

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
