European Procurement & Supply Chain Excellence Summit
Purchasing power and volatility: Time for Procurement & Supply Chain to lead
We are living in times, where “the only constant is change“. A wide range of factors, including rising commodity prices, supply-chain disruptions, expansionary economic policies, tightening labor markets, the sustainability imperative are driving the current market uncertainty, the purchasing power & challenging traditional savings levers. None of these variables is new by itself, however their combination and the velocity of change is creating new challenges and opportunities, renewing the importance of corporate resilience.
Identifying and implementing approaches to minimize exposure and protect margins has vaulted to the top of many C-suite agendas. Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) and Chief Supply Chain Officers (CSCOs) are working to optimize costs while proactively managing risk and building resilience into their supply networks. The functions are playing a critical role in enhancing resiliency by serving as orchestrators between a business and its suppliers. To enable the necessary change, procurement's operating model must be modernized.
Designed as an invitation-only event the BME European Procurement & Supply Chain Summit offers valuable insights, strategies and frameworks for procurement & supply chain leaders to bring continued agility, resilience and adaptability to their organizations. The summit aimes to explore the path towards delivery on strategic objectives while creating new ways to add value and provide a competitive advantage.
