Who should attend?
Talented procurement professionals who are leading a change initiative within their organisation. Programme attendees will be required to develop their change initiative during the 3 day programme.
Procurement Proficiency: Delegates should have a solid understanding of the concepts and workings of a procurement function in a complex business setting. This could include elements such as strategic sourcing, diagnostics, sourcing strategies, category management, should-cost, supplier relationship management, etc.
Senior Procurement Responsibilities: Delegates should either be in a senior position within the organisation or viewed as a high potential. The delegate should have frequent interaction with leadership teams providing them with exposure to the company’s business strategies, priorities, challenges and cultural complexities.
Extensive Spend Coverage and Complexity: Delegates should have a broad level of exposure to different areas of spend (products, services and infrastructure). The broader the scope and complexity, the better prepared the delegate will be for contributing to and learning from the programme environment.
Stakeholder Engagement, Organisational Alignment, and Leading Change: Delegates should have a minimum of two years senior responsibility, interacting with a variety of business and supply community stakeholders on business change. This important attribute prepares the delegate to openly discuss with other participants in the programme the challenges of communication, influence, persuasion and building trust.
