PRINCETON, NJ, August 19,2014- In the age of Big Data, when powerful analytical tools enable increasingly minute and granular data analysis, it is important not to lose sight of the “metrics that matter” – the top 10 leading barometers of procurement performance.

Patrick will be joined by Richard Waugh, VP-Corporate Development at Zycus, who has developed a “Top 10” of Procurement Metrics that should be on every CPO Dashboard. 

This interactive webinar will also feature practical demonstrations and discussions about:

  • What to measure - real time audience polls on metrics that matter most
  • How to calculate, interpret, and report on key metrics
  • Strategies for improving procurement performance
