Alex Kleiner says that procurement organisations need to throw off their linear thinking to increase flexibility and collaboration.
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.
Alex Kleiner, General Manager, EMEA at Coupa Software, says that organisations as a whole need to throw off their linear thinking and increase flexibility and fluidity.
This transition will allow organisations to eliminate barriers to collaboration, but also enable procurement to focus more on alternatives to savings, such as usability, people, or even lives saved!
Catch up with all the thought leadership and ours delegates’ Big Ideas from the 2016 Summit at the Procurious Learning Hub.
