A Buying Legal® Council webinar presented by Deloitte
September 15, 2021 | 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST

Most legal departments capture incredible amounts of spend and spend-related data, much of it unstructured. However, producing clean, reliable data on which to perform analytics that yield insights and intelligence for spend management programs and sound decision-making remains an elusive goal for many in-house teams. It is like looking for the proverbial needle among multiple haystacks.

This session will provide you with the practical information, tools and questions that you can use to find your insights. We don’t promise you’ll emerge from the session with a black belt in legal spend analytics, but we can help provide a roadmap for navigating the spend data journey in your organization. We will cover data sources, data transformation, interrogating large data sets, and tips for making sense of it all.

When technology meets humanity: The future of contract management

2020 was a pivotal year for contract management. The pandemic placed a spotlight on contract management processes and resources as businesses struggled with unprecedented disruption. COVID-19 created immediate needs for digitization, self-service, data insights, and new sourcing models. Rather than shy away from these needs, many companies began stepping up, and the pace of that change is accelerating.

For insights into the changes taking place, Deloitte’s contract management leaders are teaming up with the World Commerce & Contracting association for a look ahead to what comes next and where companies should be focusing their commercial, legal, and procurement contract management investment and resourcing energies. Join us to learn more about:

  • How the organization and resourcing of contract management teams has changed and where it is going in the future;
  • How and where organizations are investing in enabling technologies; and
  • How to demonstrate the ROI of continued investment to your stakeholders
