Despite the success stories, there is growing list of major organizations that have experienced failed or stalled Transformation programs.
Building on his experience as the Purchase to Pay Global Process Owner at BP and subsequent roles in major global corporates, Mark Miles shares his experiences, observations, recommendations and best practices developed in the “school of hard knocks” in driving transformational change in the end to end Source to Pay process.
Mark’s unique perspectives also stem from his operational and management experience in both finance and procurement.
Mark addresses stakeholder management and governance challenges, technology adoption expectations, the skills required, the human factors that can ‘make or break’ ’as well as what’s involved in ‘winning hearts and minds’ for change, which as we know, is not our natural habitat as a species!
He will share specific stories and anecdotes together with the lessons he has drawn from these situations, and how he applies them in practice today.
Join us at 3pm GMT on Tuesday 9th April for explore what to avoid as well as “what must go right”!
We look forward to having you joining us but if you are unable to attend the live session, please register as normal and you will receive a copy of the recording post-event.
