We can say with some confidence that the procurement function will look very different in just a few years. We hear almost daily about how “digital” technologies – AI, RPA, bots, machine learning -- are being used to generate better efficiency and insights. There have certainly been stumbling blocks and not every tech goal will be fulfilled as quickly as promised. However, it’s clear that many traditional procurement responsibilities are being automated and practitioners’ roles are changing.
While some may find this concerning, it may in fact present those in procurement with opportunities for much more interesting and varied careers. In this webinar presented by CIPS and GEP, experts will discuss the actual experience of digital procurement transformation, with perspectives on what procurement may look like and what its people may encounter in the coming years.
