While this article gave some advice around justifying to management a procurement technology investment and deciding which procurement technology to implement first, it represents only a small portion of what was discussed in the podcast on which the article was based.

In that podcast, I had the chance to ask Linda Peyton some questions such as:

  • How do you figure out what is hype and what is real when evaluating [procurement technology] vendors?
  • What should be done to minimize the risk to your technology initiative considering the possibility of one of your prospective vendors being acquired?
  • What non-technology ducks have to be in a row to make a technology implementation work?
  • What are some of the change management challenges faced by individuals implementing procurement technology and how can they overcome them?

If you want to know how Linda – a seasoned veteran with procurement technology implementations – answered these questions, be sure to check out the podcast here.
