Stuck for innovation ideas? Need help with your next project? Maybe it’s time for you to harness the power of the crowd.
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.
Harness the Crowd
Lisa Malone, GM – Europe at Procurious, talks about how procurement can lead organisations in harnessing the power of the crowd, and the concept of ‘hackathons’ in order to drive innovation.
‘Hackathons’ provide an opportunity to work on the business, rather that in the business, and give employees the change to take time out and come up with new ideas, and communicate and collaborate with people they would not have the opportunity to do this with otherwise.
Catch up with all the delegates’ Big Ideas from the 2016 Summit at the Procurious Learning Hub.
