About Source 2 Pay Summit 2018
When EBG was started back in 2010 it was with one simple idea – to bring cross functional experiences together in order to create real change. If you take a look at most conferences and websites gathering large organizations you will find they either focus on 1. a title – such as a CPO, CFO, CIO or other or 2. a technology – such as RPA, eprocurement, business intelligence or other or 3. industry – such as pharma, services, media and so on. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this – to the contrary – it is a lot easier communicating a single perspective and one outlook at the time. EBG have for Source 2 Pay Summit chosen another path which back in 2010 seemed almost impossible but today in 2017/2018 seem the natural – to take an end2end perspective on business development – across functions and titles, with different technologies involved and with the experiences from different industries in the room. You can call it a “smorgasbord” of know how where you can only single out one topic as the most important – change management matters. No single title, technology nor industry can solve the efficiency and effect challenge.
