Zycus webinar to highlight the rise of supply management: The Procurement Value Proposition
PRINCETON, NJ – SEPTEMBER, 21, 2015 – Businesses are going through rapid external and internal organizational changes due to an increased focus on sustainability and corporate responsibility, technological advances, geo-political & 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, organizational structure, roles and responsibilities, system development and skills required to work in the profession.
In the upcoming webinar by Zycus titled ‘The Procurement Value Proposition’, Gerard Chick, co-author of The Procurement Value Proposition and a recognized thought-leader in the profession, will discuss the value proposition offered by contemporary procurement to the sustainability and development of business. He will examine how organizations that position procurement as a core business function will be able to drive a more competitive lever for change, and more readily adapt to the forces driving rapid change in the current global environment.
