Future Proof Procurement

Digitization is part of every day’s business for many organisations. Procurement professionals around the world stand on the threshold of a new age. The old paradigm of cost reduction and cost efficiency is drawing to a close. New and revolutionary concepts are spinning from the frenzied technological leaps of our time; especially in digital transformation. In this dynamic, complex and disruptive era, procurement leaders and experts the world over are searching for a secure, successful future.

Procurement as we know it will not exist in the future at all. It’s not the question if procurement will undergo a radical reform, but when. Robots and algorithms will increasingly determine procurement processes. There is no longer one future on the horizon, at least not from a current vantage point. Purchasing experts generally outline four possible scenarios when it comes to the future of procurement: ‘R.I.P. Procurement‘, ’Procurement Primacy’, ‘World of Project Economy’ and ‘The Creative Agency’. These scenarios help to determine the specific consequences for the individual purchasing situation of organisations.

During the conference we focus on the future of procurement. What challenges lie ahead and how do we prepare ourselves for this future. Inspiring speakers will share their vision on the future of procurement and we will take a deep-dive into the area’s of predictive analysis, robotics and P2P, crowd based sourcing, reverse cost engineering and the competences you require in the future as a procurement professional. With all this information we will use break-out sessions to build the young procurement professionals vision on the future of procurement.

Chief Procurement Officer of KPN Michelle Baker. The workplace of the future will be AI-augmented, robotically-enhanced, and filledwith more data than we can ever even imagine. Succeeding in that environment will require functions that know how to best exploit these developments, populated by people who understand how to differentiate themselves and their roles as humans in this increasingly automated world. Building a future-proof procurement function will require our boldly embracing these technologies and not fearing to use them where they can do things better than humans can, whilst building uniquely human capabilities into assets the firm value. Collaboration, facilitation, and business-specific insights, will be the currencies of the successful procurement function of the future.

Key topics:

  • Predictive analytics
  • What’s the price
  • Robotics & P2P
  • Crowd based sourcing
  • Important competences

We hope that you will contribute to the future of procurement on November 9th, 2018!
