Procurement must evolve if it’s going to survive. It needs to leave its comfort zone and showcase real value for the organisation.
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.
Evolve to Survive
Dapo Ajayi, CPO at AstraZeneca, believes that procurement as a profession must evolve in order to remain relevant.
Dapo argues that procurement needs to stop being process-based, and leaders must develop new skills in order to deal with ambiguity, and enable evolution into a profession that can work with the business to enable value.
