Last Week's ISM Conference
By David Hope-Ross on May 14, 2012
This year’s ISM show was held this week at the Baltimore Convention Center from May 6-9th. This year Oracle had a major presence with an event sponsorship and exhibit. But the real highlight was Ameren presentation on “Building, Implementing, and Evolving Strategic Sourcing”. Todd Richter and Aitor Bario did a great job of outlining Ameren’s procurement transformation. Especially interesting were details related to improvements of strategic sourcing processes. Over 70 attendees learned about the impact of assessing sourcing skills *and* the extent which those skills are applied to addressing opportunities.
