Big Ideas Summit 2016: Big Idea #32 – Agility and Flexibility

It’s time for procurement to stretch their muscles and build greater agility. And procurement’s business model can help with that.

At the Big Ideas Summit 2016, we challenged our thought leaders to share their Big Ideas for the future of procurement.

From ideas that have the potential to change the very nature of the procurement profession, to ones that got the assembled minds thinking about the profession’s impact outside of the organisation, the response we received was amazing.

Improving Our Agility

Tony Jones, CPO at Hovis, discusses the importance procurement “stretching its hammies” and increasing its agility and flexibility, and what he is doing at Hovis to deliver on this.

Tony talks about the ‘Flex Model’ as an example of this agility – moving his team away from generalists, and bringing in external, expert resources to cover specific categories not already covered by his own team.

Catch up with all the delegates’ Big Ideas from the 2016 Summit at the Procurious Learning Hub.
