Kicking off the day of the Big Ideas Summit, we’re looking at another of your Big Ideas. Mike Robertson shares his thoughts on why volatility represents an opportunity to procurement.
At the Big Ideas Summit 2016 today, we will be asking our speakers and attendees to record their ‘Big Ideas’ live on camera for the whole of our Procurious community to see.
But we also believe that every single procurement and supply chain professional has a unique vantage point in the industries, communities and businesses they work in. Thank you to all who have submitted their Big Ideas to us – we think they have been great!
Mike Robertson, CEO of POD Procurement
According to Mike, markets are more volatile than ever before, and this volatility is now impacting bottom line profits. Traditionally, procurement has looked at volatility as a risk within contracts.
However, Mike’s Big Idea focuses on changing the way procurement addresses volatility, from viewing it as a risk, to viewing it as an opportunity.
