2020-11-12

Archamps, December 10, 2020.

The 11th edition of the EIPM-Peter Kraljic Awards was celebrated on December 10, 2020, at Archamps, in a virtual and dematerialised manner.

 

The event was piloted from EIPM’s headquarters and involved participants and speakers located in many European countries and the Middle East.

The use of a streaming platform made it possible to relay all the activities organised on this occasion on social networks and in real time, and for the event to be viewed in real time by over a thousand people.

 

Among the activities of the evening we must mention the addresses of Peter Kraljic, Dr Emeritus McKinsey & Company, Inc. and honorary president of the Jury, a presentation by Hervé Legenvre, PhD director of research, and professor at EIPM, on the revealed paradoxes in the new practices at work in this very special year. Three round tables on the themes of strengthened relations with stakeholders, with employees and society, and finally with suppliers in times of crisis, enabled nine winners to share their own experiences and exchange views.

 

The event was crowned with the presentation of diplomas and trophies to the winners of the 2020 EIPM Peter Kraljic Awards of Excellence.

 

These EIPM-Peter Kraljic Awards recognise purchasing organisations around the world for their exceptional practices and for their exemplary nature. As a result of the pandemic, this year’s process has been adapted both in terms of its perspective, focused on the reactions of purchasing organizations to this crisis and its consequences, and its “contactless” process.

 

The winners are selected by a jury led by Dr Peter Kraljic and comprised of industry leaders and expert buyers. This is the culmination of a very objective and comprehensive selection process. The companies are selected on the basis of their answers to a questionnaire taken from the EIPM Maturity Assessment tool Bee-Best® itself based on the EFQM Excellence model, followed for those candidates declared as finalist by the jury, by a validation interview of their practices, carried out exceptionally this year by video conference.

 

In this 2020 edition, the winners were awarded in the following three categories:

  • Master of business continuity
  • Transformation leader in turbulent times
  • Resilience and visionary leadership

As well as the “Organisation of the Year” award.

 

Mr. Bernard Gracia, EIPM President, announced the winners and the trophies were presented by Hani ALSaigh, , Head of Technology Procurement of Saudi Telecom Company (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), winner of the 2019 EIPM Peter-Kraljic “Organisation of the Year” Award.
