Barry Ward says that the procurement technology landscape is fundamentally changing and moving towards the use of cognitive technology, impacting the skills required in procurement in the future.
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.
Barry Ward, Procurement Brand Manager, Global Business Services at IBM, believes that, in order for procurement to successfully demonstrate the value it adds to organisations, it will have to bring in the right people, with the right skills, to allow it to harness the power of cognitive technology.
Catch up with all the thought leadership and ours delegates’ Big Ideas from the 2016 Summit at the Procurious Learning Hub.
