Hear about the importance of becoming a certified Accounts Payable Manager as we present this webinar covering the Basics of Project Management for Accounts Payable.

Senior management has agreed to new goals. They include the implementation of an Accounts Payable system, program or other project. It has been decided that the Accounts Payable team is to play a significant role on the Project Team.

Is a member of the Accounts Payable team to be the Project Manager? If not, will the selected PM have Accounts Payable knowledge and an understanding of the company’s existing processes as they relate to the project? Should the Accounts Payable team undertake some level of responsibility of the project?

Don’t let others outside of AP make assumptions or take full ownership of any project that will impact Accounts Payable processing, payments to vendors or the vendors themselves. After all, who will be accountable for the system or project after implementation?

In this course, learn the importance of having Accounts Payable play a leading role on any project team implementing a project or system that impacts Accounts Payable, including mergers and acquisitions. Better to know what the AP team is getting into then trying to fix issues after implementation or after the project team has disbanded.

Learning Objectives

After attending this event you will be able to:
Identify Projects that may impact Accounts Payable
Explore the steps Accounts Payable should include in a Project Plan.
Discover the benefits of open communications with others within the company.
Recognize what actions to take if the established Project Team does not have an Accounts Payable representative.
