Senior Leadership Circle

Sourcing, procurement, and vendor management leaders are responsible and accountable for an array of critical business initiatives. “Just good enough” isn’t good enough in many organizations where practices and processes are expected to be leading edge. In this track, senior leaders across sourcing, procurement, finance, vendor and asset management will benefit from content geared towards their advanced needs. Through smaller interactive sessions, senior leaders will join with their peers, Gartner analysts and guest speakers to explore best practices that can help improve how they engage with internal and external partners to deliver against their critical business initiatives.


Topics include:

  • Improve Your Ability to Apply Internal Influencing Skills
  • Effective Steps to Create a Procurement, Sourcing and Vendor Management COE
  • Mastering the Art of Storytelling to Engage and Influence
