10.20 – The Top Five Causes of P2P Project Failure and how to Prevent Them
Dan Butts, Principal Consultant, Xoomworks
Brenda Robinson, Business Change Manager, Allied Irish Bank
It is often said that more is learnt from failure than success. In this session one of Xoomworks’ Senior Consultants explores the main reasons for project failure when implementing eProcurement solutions. This will be followed by a Q&A session with a Xoomworks’ client AIB to discover how they approached their project in order to ensure a successful outcome.
12:45pm – The Inside Story: From Machine Learning to Procurement Benefit Realisation
Paddy Lawton, founder of Spend360, now at Coupa,
Gary Entwistle, Principal Consultant, Xoomworks
Bob Thompson, Principal Consultant, Xoomworks
Making technology smart is only part of the story. The key to sustainable benefits realisation is unlocking machine learning e.g. as incorporated within spend analysis tools, to fast track hard savings and real benefits for Procurement and the wider business. With the aid of a clear leader in this field, Xoomworks will help build the understanding you need to make machine learning work for you!
