You are what you do. A time study at my previous CPO role showed that my senior team was still mired in important, but not high level, strategic work. I now have the opportunity to build a brand new supply chain function, in a fast-growing company, with the target to be focused on supplier innovation, internal collaboration and being the C-Level CPO. Yes, the procurement work has to be done, but it doesn’t have to be done by you. The key is to build out the virtual procurement function and let the Marketplace deliver transactional solutions. This interactive discussion will challenge your understanding of procurement, and present to you a unique opportunity to be on the ground floor of an SCM revolution.
For procurement, change is in the air. Whether that is trying to introduce new digital technologies, establishing more sustainable supply chains or get ahead of emerging trends, change is coming to the function. Those that aren’t ready for that change will find themselves quickly left behind the competition. For those that are ready for change, they need to set out their vision for what that change will look like and how they plan to execute on that vision.
On this webinar you will hear from Roy Anderson, Chief Procurement and Digital Transformation Officer at Tradeshift, Dr. Ulrich Piepel, VP Global Head of Procurement, at Innogy as well as Simon Lipscomb, Sales and Marketing Director at Efficio as they outline their respective visions, how they have implemented those plans and the lessons they have learned along the way.
You should expect to learn:
- How to establish a vision for your function
- How to effectively execute on that vision
- As well as the pitfalls you should avoid and how to overcome the challenges you will face
