When it comes to indirect procurement, setting your organization up for success is a marathon, not a sprint. To reach the ultimate destination of spend under management and real-time visibility into where, what, and how your organization is spending money, consider creating a roadmap that’s broken out into smaller, more attainable steps. Doing so will help you ensure the right balance between addressing the tactical needs of your business and building the strategic foundation to successfully drive more value for your stakeholders.
