Disruption Opinion Technology

035: #ProcureTech 2016 Wrap Up: Is Technology Disrupting the Procurement Delivery Model?, with Jason Busch

Last week I joined almost 300 procurement peers from around the world at the first Spend Matters ISM Global Procurement Tech Summit in Baltimore, Maryland. As the event came to a close, I spent 15 minutes catching up with Jason Busch – Founder and Head of Strategy at Azul Partners and Spend Matters – discussing what it took to put together an event of this size, and the key takeaways that Jason took from from the conference.
