    • 1. Strangers No More – How Procurement and Finance Can Thrive in a Downturn
    • 2. Procurement and finance – the Odd Couple no more
      • Direct and indirect savings: Working together to make sourcing savings stick
      • Collaborative improvement: Cost reduction and working capital management improvements from joint initiatives
      • Lowering transaction costs: Jointly reducing transaction costs and not waiting for the next IT upgrade or multi-tower outsourcing program to do so
      • Mitigating risk: Lowering supply risk in an increasingly dangerous economic environment impacting suppliers of all sizes

    • 12. And let’s not forget other reasons why procurement and finance are being forced together by necessity “ Fair Trade” not “Free Trade” Failed stimulus policies (e.g., automotive incentives in US vs. China)
      • Commodity volatility and negative growth
      • Commodity inflation and deflation
      • Declining GDP
      • Financial meltdown / accounting changes
      • Credit crunch, bank failures
      • Liquidity concerns, supplier access to capital
      • LIFO  FIFO

    • 13. Upstream vs. downstream P2P – a few lessons learned from the trenches
      • Integration upstream can be a hobby—downstream it needs to be a full-time job
      • Administrative / initial upstream activities touch fewer individuals—by an order of magnitude (thinking through what this means is critical)
      • Neither set of activities (contrary to popular perception) should be looked at as any more IT-centric than the other
      • Companies should treat both areas just like any other sourcing category—but so few ever do
