Tom Derry believes procurement needs to move away from a traditional cost focus, and create a more strategic brand value for the profession.
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.
Tom Derry, CEO of the Institute of Supply Management (ISM), believes that it’s time for procurement to have a more strategic brand value, and transition away from a traditional focus on cost, to support the greater dimensions of value for organisations.
As CEOs are becoming more concerned about risk profiles (brand risk; risk of disruption), the brand of procurement is being enhanced by offering value in risk management and mitigation, as well as adding value and managing cost.
Catch up with all the thought leadership and ours delegates’ Big Ideas from the 2016 Summit at the Procurious Learning Hub.
