Webinar: Separating AI hype from reality in procurement

The rise of Chat GPT has catapulted AI into the limelight, captivating the public’s imagination. Businesses across the globe are now racing to understand its implications within their operations, and the field of Procurement is no exception.

Amidst the excitement, Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) find themselves grappling with a pressing question: How can AI practically benefit the organisation today, especially when confronting the future challenges of 2024?

In this hour long webinar, we tackled the most pertinent questions on CPOs’ minds:

  • How is AI changing Procurement today?

  • How will AI’s current transformative impacts alter the focus and actions of the procurement team during the next 12-months? What sort of AI-supported outcomes will be achieved?

  • What are the medium to long-term implications of AI? What does the future hold?

  • What will these future options mean for the organisation, the team, and their roles?

Watch here for a lively, informal discussion between hosts Omer Abdullah, Graham Crawshaw and a panel of procurement experts.
