Benchmark | How do you manage change in a de-centralized organisation?
NCC is a construction and property development company in the Nordic Region with annual sales of over SEK 57 billion and approx. 16.500 employees.
NCC operate in a matrix and de-centralized organization structure posing challenges for sourcing and procurement. In a matrix organization clear roles and people management skills enabling working at the interfaces is crucial for success and for strategies to come true.
Becoming a data driven company where procurement strategies are based on data requires changed skillsets among employees as well as new ways of working.
Discuss and compare how You and your procurement function act to become more relevant and come closer to the business.
- How much of the gap between here and what could be has to do with changed competence needs?
- How does your procurement organization stay relevant in a de-centralized organization?
- In what ways do You believe procurement can add value in an increasingly data driven organisation?
- How is procurement strategies aligned with business stakeholder needs?
- What does it take from company leadership skills to transform behavior?
The above is the session “wrapping” – for 2 x 40 minutes a select group (seats are limited to ensure great experience exchange) peers and possibly experts will share know how.
What does benchmark mean?
Benchmark mean Emma don’t have all the answers (as do few people) but are open and willing to share their experiences and challenges. Doing so – and encouraging peers to do the same – is a great way to spend a day. At least if you ask EBG. Informal yet to the point discussions where You just might find pieces of a puzzle that can help You and your business grow.
Until September 7th EBG offer a low investment level to join (and after the 7th it is still low). Don’t wait as all round table discussions have limited seats.
