Leading change: The path to influence, alignment and true value
The pressure is on procurement to deliver cost savings, mitigate risk, contribute innovation and leverage the supply chain to compete in an uncertain economy. If CPOs are to become true champions and partners to the business, they must do all this and more – exerting influence on internal partners and suppliers and matching quick wins with a strategic, long-term mindset.
Coping with this new normal isn’t enough – procurement must excel. The Procurement Leaders Forum featured key speakers and content aimed at making those next steps a reality.
Topics on the agenda included:
Business alignment: Procurement must know what internal stakeholders want, sometimes before they do themselves. But how can the function ensure their department is structured and aligned in the correct way to do so?
The value chain: Procurement has a unique opportunity to extend its influence and be a significant contributor to turning supply chain opportunities into topline benefit. Knowing how to leverage the value chain is a vital step toward next-level procurement.
Talent: A new set of challenges demands a new standard of people. For procurement that means solving a unique set of talent problems and assembling, maintaining and motivating a team to achieve excellence.
Procurement’s profile: Procurement is still embroiled in a battle too to gain and sustain recognition across the business. But a glance at some of the industry leaders shows just how far the right attitude and the right skills can take the function.
