In March and April 2020 procurement leaders have been called on the bridge. They have played a pivotal role in mitigating the impact of the virus and lockdown on business activities. The complexity of supply chains coupled with the tremendous uncertainty created by this pervasive exogenous shock has given procurement a unique role in restoring continuity, recovering performance and regaining advantages for the business.
Addressing vulnerabilities coming from internal fragilities and external shocks means keeping corporate investment safe and contributing to societal resilience. And purchasing teams have shown that they can take ownership of this major responsibility.
This was a unique event that helped us understand what works in our way of handling of supply chains. It is also a call for action as more is needed in the future. Risk management will be one of our priorities for the months and years to come. So, It is time to get the foundations right! As procurement professionals, our decisions and actions will have major impacts well beyond the procurement circles. Making a difference today will impact on the jobs and life of many people tomorrow. Our ability to persevere but also to adapt is central to this.
The focus of the webinar will not be on the tools but on how to effectively use them
We target curious and ambitious procurement professionals – CPOs, Procurement Excellence / Development Professionals, Category Managers, who want to know how to best leverage on digitization and finally get their story heard by the C-level. Future procurement is offering exciting new opportunities. This call will provide you a fresh motivating perspective on your job and future chances. Let’s make this step together.
