Workshop | How do you realize changed procurement focus and ways of working?
We all know culture eats strategy for breakfast. Finding ways to support and influence common ways of working within for instance category management is key. Key because even TCO (total cost of ownership) is becoming obsolete. Cost focus is not enough neither only focus on delivery. What value does procurement create for the customer? The insights generated yesterday are not good enough tomorrow. It is important that procurement get to offer guidance during a strategic shift. Yet more is demanded from fewer and procurement need to find ways to still realize strategies and operational excellence. Here we will share experiences in enabling those strategies throughout the business from a procurement perspective. From management and down and from operations and up.
Discuss and share lessons learned;
- How do you work with broader category management and get the function strategy to permeate the entire business?
- What challenges are You facing? What are You following up and what behavior is that generating?
- Which role do KPI’s have during this journey?
- What coverage do You have within the Value Based dimensions within Your scope of work?
Read through the above one more time. It holds such great value. Is to the point.
