Hotel & Lodging Management - Going Beyond Traditional Sourcing 
As many corporate Hotel and Lodging programs mature, the ability to deliver optimization and drive savings via traditional methods is diminishing.
  • Is tactical sourcing still the primary program driver instead of aligning program strategy to broader company imperatives?
  • How much focus is placed on high impact opportunities:
    • Increased program bypass?
    • Declining user acceptance and satisfaction?
    • Risk and compliance management?
  • What new innovation, tools and processes are available to look at comprehensive Lodging program management differently?
  • What strategies can be implemented to negate the impact of a sellers' market and drive cost reductions or "bend the cost curve increase down"?
TCG Hotel and Lodging Practice Leader Bill Rogde has been addressing these issues with leading organizations and building new processes to manage the entire program beyond traditional sourcing tools.
