The P2P process can be difficult to measure since procurement and accounts payable may report to different organizations. In some companies, accounts payable usually reports through finance and procurement may report to supply chain management. This session will identify the key functions that impact the P2P process. The instructor will focus on the integral dependencies within the P2P process. We’ll discuss how metrics can highlight the negative and positive aspects of this important process. We’ll discuss how the P2P process can provide cost savings and improvements to working capability. The instructor will provide examples of metrics and dashboards that have been used at well-known companies.
This session will provide a roadmap for the implementation of key metrics that can be used in formulating a P2P Dashboard. The instructor will provide practical guidance for developing metrics that are reportable, actionable, and will stand the test of time. Attendees will learn how to actually use metrics and trends to develop areas for business process improvement. The instructor will define and explain the four foundational groups of metrics for the P2P process.
