Introduction (10 minutes)
The peer executive will engage the audience for brief introductions and discuss the format and key take aways from the guided interactive conversation and dinner discussion.

As the business world becomes more interconnected and complex, companies face both monumental challenges and opportunities. Icertis works closely with customers like Airbus, Best Buy, Humana, Daimler, Microsoft and others to enable enterprise contract management that accelerates contract turn-around time, increases and optimizes operations.

Microsoft and Icertis invite you to discuss:

Digital transformation and enterprise contract management

What does contract management look like in the everyday enterprise? No longer is contract management merely an administrative task, but a very dynamic role that orchestrates change, and make sense of market volatility, driving performance,  and outcome-based agreements, and payment for results as it integrates processes across the enterprise, and beyond. Most organizations already have contract management tools, but they are underutilized, and are largely used as repositories for storing contracts. The most innovative companies, however, know that contract management solutions are much more powerful,l and their legal, finance, procurement, and sales operations experts are taking full advantage of them.

Ways to increase speed and agility of contracting while enhancing compliance.

 Speed is not often an attribute associated with procurement. As you know, procurement can be a highly process-oriented, administratively driven opponent to speed because of the perceived need for sourcing cycles. Speed of response is the new competitive edge. How do you achieve optimal speed?

Specific customer testimonials that show how optimized contracting enhances operations

This portion of the session will discuss real world examples of how to put these best practices into place and the dramatic effect it can have on your people and processes. It will help us see the challenges they navigated to get them implemented and will ensure some key takeaways for all participants.

  • Take the management of contracts to the next level
  • Achieve process harmonization, increase transparency and visibility, and gain business performance support
  • Standardizing and streamlining the contracting process from initiation to delivery

Spoon and Stable is a restaurant located in what was once a horse stable, dating back to 1906, in the heart of the North Loop Neighborhood. It is a dream of Chef/Owner Gavin Kaysen, a James Beard award-winning chef to bring his talents back home to Minneapolis, where he grew up. The cuisine is focused on the seasonality of the Midwest, the roots of the local culture technically inspired by the French cuisine for which Chef Kaysen is known.
