Panelist appearance on BlogTalk Radio: Spend Management vs Spend Intelligence

I had the fortune today of being part of a panel discussion on Jon Hansen's BlogTalk Radio show PI Window on Business. Jon's topic for today was around the topic of Spend Management and, specifically, the difference between spend analysis and spend intelligence. The panel consisted of two other business professionals; an author, speaker and consultant on management consulting and a professional that handles Sarbanes-Oxley compliance issues within businesses.

Hansen's idea for the show stemmed from an article titled Spend Intelligence: The Next Wave of Spend Analysis (Sudy Bharadwaj - Supply Chain Management Review 9/1/2006). The show covered a number of interesting points including the idea of there even being a difference between spend analysis and spend intelligence, the role of on-demand reporting and Software as a Service (SaaS), change management issues that organizations face in adopting a new, best practice approach and other interesting topics.

The show aired live on 9/24/09 and the on-demand audio is hosted below. I look forward to any comments you may have.
