Today’s supply chain organizations are faced with a multitude of challenges ranging from ongoing cost-cutting efforts to digital disruptions, all of which give rise to a multitude of process-related initiatives. Are you:

  • working on establishing a process framework for your sourcing and procurement organization?
  • using APQC’s Process Classification Framework (PCF)® to realign supply chain processes that are currently going off in different directions?
  • looking to enable better and faster decisions by standardizing processes across locations and consolidating data into one version of the truth within your organization?
  • trying to make inroads in improving your supply and demand planning processes?

If you answered "yes" to any of these challenges, or if you want to learn how organizations are using process frameworks for better results, join two of APQC’s thought leaders, Holly Lyke-Ho-Gland and Marisa Brown, for this webinar on December 13. They will explore how organizations leverage process frameworks to align and improve business processes, focusing on supply chain management.

Many finance teams are stuck using budgeting processes from the 1920s. These have been sped up by using spreadsheets but they still serve as once-a-year guesses of what you hope will happen. While your world is constantly changing, the budget plan remains fixed (and often less and less relevant). The good news is many organizations have found much better ways to plan and control by moving beyond budgets. 

This APQC webinar on Wednesday, December 13 at 2:00 p.m. Central features Steve Player, director of BBRT North America, who will examine how you can create a better supported, more accountable organization by moving beyond budgeting to become future ready.

The objectives of this session are to:

  • identify the common problems finance teams face when using traditional annual budgets;
  • show how these problems have been overcome by companies moving to become more future ready; and
  • provide practical examples of the lessons learned from the companies that have already moved beyond budgeting to create more responsive and agile operations.
