The Procurement Value Proposition: The Rise of Supply Management
Businesses are going through rapid external and internal organisational changes due to an increased focus on sustainability and corporate responsibility, technological advances, geo-political and macro-economic change, and demographic shifts. If purchasing and supply chain managers are to embrace these challenges they must develop new ways of thinking about supply structures and processes as well as new skills and competencies.
The Procurement Value Proposition examines these important changes that will have a profound effect on the way future procurement is carried out. It considers the implications of global economic transformation for procurement set against: changes in business contexts, purchasing strategies, organisational structure, roles and responsibilities, system development and skills required to work in the profession. In this webinar, Gerard Chick, co-author of The Procurement Value Proposition and a recognised thought-leader in the profession, will discuss the value proposition offered by contemporary procurement to the sustainability and development of business.
