Every procurement pro needs somebody to tell them the world weather forecast so they can figure out when they’re going to need an umbrella!
At the Big Ideas Summit 2017, we once again challenged our thought leaders to share their Big Ideas for the future of procurement.
Our attendees spoke about everything from creativity to politics, from cognitive technology to workplace agility, current affairs, economics and the future. Whatever your industry and wherever you are in the world, there are some top tips to takeaway!
Be Sure To Understand Your World Weather Forecast
Justin Crump, CEO at Sibylline thinks that procurement organisations need to become more worldly wise in order to better manage future risk.
At present, larger organisations might be competent at managing risk but often this is very much in silos. This makes it very hard to fully understand what they are facing as a result of global events.
Given the rate at which technology is evolving and how global events are impacting the world, it is increasingly difficult for companies to keep up without considering risk in real-time.
Intelligence about the world we live in drives business operations and the better informed we are the easier it is to drive progress.
Justin urges us to gain a clear view of the world to measure against so the we can focus our resources on what world means to us.
