For us it has always been of interest how large organizations choose to manage the desire to centralize and push down head count and transaction cost and the need to gain end to end control and visibility. Doing so not only to be able to reduce cost but to be able to have a single view on company books and find ways to steer towards end to end value ad.
Together with Leif you can learn from their experiences and the developments they have been through over the past years (and they are many!). You can also learn from the other peers joining the discussions we have chosen to call Theme Discussions.
Telenor Group is embarking on a transformation journey within the procurement area. With 12 markets and more than 30 000 employees, end to end performance is key. Telenor has a Global Shared Services organization that started out in the Nordics 15 years ago. But within source to pay the focus in this organization has mainly been on the invoice to pay part. In 2017 Telenor therefore established the global Telenor Procurement Company (TPC) with HQ in Singapore. The last couple of years Telenor has been focusing on increasing the use purchase orders, but since one size does not fit all spend they are now moving towards a more flexible approach.
When could you last sit down and share views on what could potentially solve current headaches worth millions and ease your burden through the know how of others?
