It is fairly common for organizations to address strategic sourcing in conversation and discuss opportunities without actually doing anything. Author and educator Kate Vitasek has applied her proven approach for transitioning strategic supplier relationships from talk to implementation to some of the world's greatest organizations. Through her experience, Vitasek has learned quite a bit, and is offering her insights during a presentation that this year's Institute for Supply Management's annual international conference. During her signature session titled Unleash the Magic of Transformational Supplier Relationships, Vitasek will discuss how to make the change from conversing to executing, and the five rules that she believes can revolutionize any organization's approach to strategic supplier partnerships. With the range of real-world examples shared during this presentation, attendees can anticipate valuable take-aways to apply once they get back in the office.

In the most recent episode of Source One's Countdown to ISM2017, we spoke with Kate Vitasek on her signature session, and what motivated her to speak about the topic specifically. She also shared her tips for getting the most out of ISM2017, and recommended attendees make an effort to talk to other professionals from around the world that will be making the trip to Orlando for the ISM2017 experience. Along with being a great opportunity to meet people, Vitasek explains how an event like ISM2017 offers the audience insights from professionals that have been internationally recognized for their research, who provide tips and tricks for making their procurement organization a success.
