Webinar: Driving successful procurement transformation uniting goals, digitalisation and talent

It’s easy to envisage the characteristics of a successful procurement function: one that is strategic, digitalised, value-focused, innovative, the list goes on. However, achieving all these desirables through practical transformation is much more complex. 

A successful approach considers all aspects together, as a ‘system’ of sorts, and builds a coherent operating model that delivers the overarching procurement strategy.

During this hour long webinar, our panellists Graham Crawshaw FCIPS, Procurement Content Director, CASME, Omer Abdullah, Co-Founder, The Smart Cube, Andre Almeida, Procurement Director LATAM, AkzoNobel and Anastasio Yehyawi Valenzuela, Senior Director Procurement discussed the key aspects of driving successful Procurement Transformation by uniting goals, digitalisation and talent and how these three fundamental concepts must hold true when transforming your Procurement function:

  • #1: Clarity on Procurement’s goals in an organisation is paramount
  • #2: Digital transformation is part and parcel of procurement transformation
  •  #3: Talent must be front and centre in the transformation agenda

“Digital transformation is part and parcel of procurement transformation. It is integrated and you cannot separate the two.” – Omer Abdullah
