Press Release   •   May 09, 2016 11:44 CEST

EBG | Network - A cross functional, end-to-end business network focusing on improved sales and forecasting, increased spend under management and financial supply chain control

EBG are well known to enable experience exchange among peers. EBG are also well known to create flawless experiences with the focus on the right things – sharing know-how, getting to a result, being concrete and taking an end-to-end perspective.

A while back EBG conducted a survey among Swedish procurement and finance organizations to find out how willing to change they and their organizations were. The survey reveal that most – but not all – say there is a clear change mandate and that there is some kind of co-operation between functions. How employees and managers should be informed and communicated with to enable the mandated change initiative seems to be fairly clear. But, managers don’t seem to help realize the changes needed and even more striking – there is not enough support in order to communicate and inform those involved and thus the mandated change initiative most likely will not happen as intended.

This survey has been the foundation of most questions asked via EBG. The answers indicate the need to take the right steps and focus on the right questions and this is what EBG do.

EBG is teaming up with educators to fill a gap between change and transformation initiatives and realization within sourcing, procurement and finance.

In the autumn 2016 EBG present Pontus Wadström, PhD candidate in Industrial Economics and Management at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm. Pontus also worked with strategy and management issues at Skanska for six years. Previously he has been a management consultant and part of a start up within the health service sector.

The education is focused on practical advice – an actual business case – and experience exchange within the group.

EBG | Network

EBG | Network startades 2010 av Anna Bjärkerud med ambitionen att samla och dela erfarenheter kring elektronisk affärsprocessutveckling bland Nordiska företag och organisationer. Fokusområden är köparens önskan att styra och kontrollera flödet från behov eller inköp till betalning, leverantörens från order till betalning. Eftersom denna process i stora bolag är extremt funktionsindelad anser EBG att det behövs funktionsövergripande forum som hjälper bolag att effektivisera och automatisera för att realisera förbättrade resultat, ökad spårbarhet och nöjdare kunder och leverantörer. EBG driver idag även den årliga konferensen Source 2 Pay Summit

As one of few networks, EBG aims at creating opportunities to learn from your peers across functions and across industry borders. We talk about the networked economy and what impact current and future private and public sector development bring to the table for any CFO, CPO, CIO, SSC manager or any other person with the mandate to bring change to their organisation.

We host a couple of blogs:

And run a couple of yearly networking days:

We do interviews, write articles, make surveys, run webinars and much more - because we believe that all business and organisational development comes from changing peoples behaviour, looking at business processes in a more holistic way and sharing experiences across industry borders.

Welcome to EBG | Network!
