Digital strategy, analytics and operating models
Digitization and analytics competences shared by A.P Møller Maersk, Novozymes, h&Z and Stena Rederi. A topic impossible to avoid these days. Also a topic that without a correlation to operating model, changed behavior and clear ways of measuring outcome is little worth. Lars, René, Jochen and Henrik have tons of experience also making strategies come true. Visions without anchoring in reality is not what Sourcing Outlook is about!
People, process and technology
Competences shared by NCC, Determine, a Corcentric company, Icertis, SAP Ariba and Tradeshift. Since the start back in 2010, EBG have stressed the importance of taking a full picture view when new processes and tools are implemented. How many have experienced that new system simply not being used as intended? Leaving frustration and lost investments behind. Which is unfortunate since the possibilities today – from a tools perspective – are endless! Emma, Diego, Sophie, Per, Geetha, Annette, Sara and Carin can draw from hands on experiences and both successes and failures.
It is therefor truly inspiring to view the topics led by providers at Sourcing Outlook and the notion they take into the people aspects of changed ways of working – which tools enable.
Risk management and sustainability improvements
Competences shared by Holmen, EcoVadis, Danfoss, DHL Resilience 360, Kodiak Rating and Achilles. If risk management and sustainability before was about controls and clauses – it is today about enabling businesses to grow safely. In collaboration with suppliers! Data has revolutionized this area and it keep on evolving.
Sourcing Outlook is not a fair, nothing wrong with fairs, it is just not what Sourcing Outlook is. EBG pay close attention to the people attending and ensure as many as is possible can speak with each other. This can not be done if there are too many people attending, thus EBG have limited seats. Register here if you want to join what surely will be an intense and value packed day in Stockholm!
