WEBINAR: Re-Defining Sourcing: Economic Uncertainty as The Trigger for Operational Efficiency and Reinvention

Baker Tilly

Event Details


May 21, 2020 12 PM - 1 PM CDT




In the span of six weeks, the world as we knew it came to a halt. We experienced a massive economic shift from sustained growth, even if lined with skepticism for its long-term sustainability, to a drop of nearly 30% in the U.S.’s daily economic output. While this cataclysmic stoppage has often been in response to containing the pandemic spread, forward-thinking organizations have already begun to plan their emergence from the shutdown – and to redefine the future of the sourcing function.

Join Baker Tilly for this engaging, thought-provoking webinar to learn best practices, practical examples and actionable tools leveraged by the sectors’ most progressive organizations in shaping a new reality of sourcing – today.

Learner Objectives :

  • Understand the five guiding posts in redefining sourcing and operational frameworks under the new economic reality

  • Apply a directional framework to integrating such items into a resilient sourcing model for your organization
