The Digital Leadership Agenda
For many executives, business agility is a key priority for 2017. Supply chain and procurement are two particular areas that can have a tremendous impact on overall agility. Digitising processes, connecting buyers and suppliers, improving collaboration and much more.
Join the conversation with leading experts and like-minded professionals in this relaxed atmosphere; exchange ideas and debate key issues around digitisation.
This event is ideal for senior leaders in the central IT functions, procurement and supply chain field.
Agenda subject to change:
17:00 Arrival & Networking Drinks
17:30 The Future of Procurement – Nicklas Brändström, SVP Tradeshift
Historically, companies have looked to Procurement to help manage costs, improve operational efficiencies, and manage supplier relationships. While these are still important objectives, ongoing global economic uncertainty, the ever-increasing pace of innovation, and the near-constant entrance of new competitors in both established and emerging markets has companies looking to Procurement teams to help facilitate innovation and agility across the business.
- Why in the last 15 years, 52% of the Fortune 500 companies disappeared?
- Why Procurement is adapting to become more agile?
- How Procurement can aid innovation across the company?
18:00 Trends: Changes in consumer behaviours and expectations – Mark Bryan, Management Consulting, KPMG
18:20 Open roundtable – Procurement Innovation: How to successfully transition from being measured on savings to being measured on value – Mark Masterson, Alliances Director, Tradeshift
Refocussing the procurement organisation on value adding activities and becoming more agile is high on the CPO agenda. But what does “value adding procurement” really mean? How is it measured and recognised? And what are the steps to switch from continuous improvement to agility and proactive value creation?
18:50 Walk to Dinner
19:00 Dinner at Brdr. Price
