Karl Jacobsson, Procurement Manager Nordic-Baltic at AstraZeneca explains how access to Procurement Leaders’ market intelligence helps to drive best practice.


“In recent years procurement has gone from being viewed as a back office function to being at the forefront of an organisation’s planning and thinking,” says Karl Jacobsson, Procurement Manager Nordic-Baltic at AstraZeneca. “The value it brings to a company’s strategic planning is now being recognised more and more.

“With that higher visibility comes an increased pressure to stay abreast of all developments, research and intelligence that can help keep things moving forward and improving.”

Karl’s team at AstraZeneca, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and a FTSE 100 member, has been tasked with bringing extra value to the business by working with the best suppliers and reworking and simplifying the procurement process.

“Being a part of Procurement Leaders has definitely helped drive best practice in our team,” explains Karl. “We are driving transformation within the procurement function and Procurement Leaders is a place we can turn to when we need a trusted external source of information. Not only do they provide the raw intelligence we want, but their analysis and advice add value.

“The more knowledge we have at our fingertips the more we are trusted by stakeholders and the stronger position we are in when it comes to planning decisions.”

Procurement Leaders’ online resources are a major reference point for Karl and his team. From daily blog updates by industry experts to webinar panel discussions involving world renowned CPOs, Procurement Leaders provides a constant stream of timely and topical content.

“The content is a major aspect of being a member for me,” says Karl. “I read a huge amount of the articles published on the website. In fact it’s become a part of my daily routine. I find the guest writers of particular interest as it’s useful to see viewpoints from different parts of the industry. It all helps in generating ideas and spotting new opportunities.”

Karl’s team at AstraZeneca are just one of a growing number of procurement professionals who are utilising Procurement Leaders’ membership offering to complement and enhance their planning efforts.

“Procurement Leaders helps to open our minds and helps us to experiment with new techniques and methods we haven’t tried before,” adds Karl. “It feels like a community and we see them as our extended team in many ways.”
