CPO Breakfast Luxembourg 2019 banner

Fifth Generation Purchasing

In 2016 EIPM started to investigate how purchasing organisations need to evolve to best respond to the current
business transformations caused by the Internet of Things, Digitalisation, Sustainability, etc.

In this context, we need adaptability. One-size-fits-all approaches are irrelevant. We need different ways of
working to address different situations and we should be able to move swiftly from one to another.

Through a series of Roundtables and Conferences we have worked with practitioners and developed a new framework that puts the speed of change happening or expected on the Demand side and the Supply side at the heart of the analysis.

The outcomes and discussions have been very interesting. This really helps to shed some light on the diversity of practices we need to master in the current economic environment. It also showed us that the mind-sets and ways of thinking are evolving.

On the 31st of Ocotber 2019, we will be in Luxembourg to present this framework and show how it can be concretely implemented. Join us !


Who should attend?

This breakfast meeting is designed for Purchasing Executives interested in the topic and/or looking for inspiration and guidance to bring their companies to the next level.



Hervé Legenvre, PhD

Value Creation Observatory Director & Professor

As the Director of the EIPM Value Creation Observatory, Hervé acts as a Jury for the EIPM-Peter Kraljic Awards and regularly speaks at in-company and public events.
Hervé blends the best of the academic and practitioner thinking to create a unique learning experience and engaging content. He continuously looks at the trends that will shape the business world in the future.
He believes that the competitive edge of companies will increasingly be co-created with suppliers as innovation needs to be seized outside. He builds on his wide knowledge of invention, innovation and business excellence to create new tools and practices that help engage everyone on what counts most in a fast-changing world.
Previously, Hervé led the EIPM Executive MBA program and led the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) European Excellence Award. Additionally, Hervé worked for Renault Consulting where he led major change initiatives.
