William R. Dorn, Jr. of Source One Management Services, LLC and co-author of “Managing Indirect Spend: Enhancing Profitability Through Strategic Sourcing,” and Richard B. Lanza of Cash Recovery Partners, LLC have partnered with http://www.CFO.com to host a webcast event entitled “Cost Management: Eliminate Procurement Practices that Increase Costs & Risk.” This hour-long online seminar will be broadcast through the CFO.com website on October 3, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
Due to legacy procurement practices that have been passed down, many companies believe their procurement methods are fail-safe practices for purchasing the goods and services they need to run their daily operations. With over two-decades of experience, Dorn and Lanza will highlight these common practices and provide insights into why they lead to higher prices, increased risk and the potential for fraud in a supply chain. Attendees that will benefit from this presentation include CFOs, controllers, internal auditors, business owners, and business unit managers.
