In this webinar, Ardent Partners will share new research designed to help procurement organizations develop a transformation "blueprint" — a holistic view of the source-to-settle process and the underlying architecture required to support sustainable business process improvement.

Also featured — a case study from a major global pharmaceutical company that has found the right formula for blending people, process, and technology to achieve world class performance

And finally, you'll hear three distinct paths to successful procurement transformations.
