How do you drive large transformation or change projects in your organization? Many have centralized ways of managing change initiatives in procurement, have you? EBG | Network are glad to welcome Mark Gustafson, Program Director, Global Purchasing Strategic Initiatives, Electrolux who will host a Theme Discussion during Source 2 Pay Summit 2021 on May 6th.
What is a Theme Discussion?
Theme Discussions are what EBG think you need. Informal yet to the point group discussions among experts and peers. Topics chosen by You. Enabling you to get to know and discuss with excellent competences you would not otherwise meet. Especially now. Source 2 Pay Summit 2021 will be 100% online however also 100% dedicated to quality experience exchange. EBG spend a lot of time connecting people based on each individual desire. The rest is up to you.
The session hosted by Mark will have the following focus – benchmark meaning there are no “this is how you do it” but rather helping each other find pieces of a puzzle, exchanging individual experiences that together as a group generate true value. This is the best EBG can offer you in times like these – as well as in normal times since this has been our ways of working for over ten years.
Benchmark | How do you drive global transformation projects?
Technology combined with changing people’s behavior are what most business transformation strategies consist of. At Electrolux a Group Purchasing PMO (program management office) is in charge of ensuring global strategic and practical changes are executed. They are in charge of tool rollouts, cross organization ways of working, process changes and making sure the organization understand and adapt to changes. How do you ensure this structure constantly evolves? How do you assess skills needed and adapt training resources? Discuss how you drive strategies from a group perspective as well as;
- How do you define the scope of and touch-point between different change initiatives?
- In what ways do you adapt training resources depending on skills assessment in the organization?
- How do you incorporate feedback and continuous improvement in your project tools and methods?
- How you change your focus from program’s project phase to its operational phase?
