Industry leader Procter & Gamble is pushing the envelope on enterprise collaboration, building a platform for its employees, suppliers and partners to collaborate, work together and innovate across geographical and departmental boundaries. In its journey, P&G is leveraging web 2.0 tools and social technologies to connect teams and individuals in a way never before possible; ultimately creating a new social fabric of collaboration in the enterprise.

Collaboration, like Innovation & Transformation, is increasingly becoming an oft-used but seldom understood industry buzzword. While most everyone understands that in a web 2.0 world, collaboration is a function of tapping into the collective intelligence of "crowds" and forming a knowledge network; examples of how Consumer Goods manufacturers are applying this to tap into enterprise and supplier networks are few and far between.

In this webinar, we focus specifically on how P&G is leveraging web 2.0 tools for enterprise collaboration for sourcing of goods and services. Join P&G's Associate Director of Global IT Sourcing Shashi Mandapaty to learn more about:

How a collaboration platform can be used for improved collaboration between CPG manufacturers and suppliers

Examples of how such collaboration can lead to improved efficiencies, quicker speed to market and lower procurement costs

How you can discover and develop experts by rewarding people to share ideas, thereby harnessing tacit knowledge and making it available to the larger organization

The tools and processes that constitute an effective social collaboration fabric for the enterprise.
