The Case for End-to-End Process Ownership in P2P

Research by The Hackett Group has shown that nearly all top performing P2P organizations have at least a high degree of end-to-end collaboration between Purchasing Operations and Accounts Payable. This means leaders work with shared goals and joint initiatives to define and drive value, and overcome traditional functional silos.

Join this session to learn what is really meant by "end-to-end" ownership, why it matters, and the role technology plays. Hackett P2P Advisory Program Leader Amy Fong will share the business case to support change, list key considerations to build into your plan, and offer examples of what’s working at some of today's leading companies. Xerox's Craig McCrackin will leverage his decades plus experience in transitioning work from clients to Xerox, to highlight how companies can benefit immediately from BPO.

Register now to understand what end-to-end process ownership means in terms of governance, decision making, and resource structure.
