MRO for Procurement, 20 & 21 September 2018, The Stamford Plaza, Brisbane
This two-day special event will give your organization the insight to gain greater control of your MRO and spare parts inventory spend, address your key issues with MRO and spare parts inventory management and unlock the significant hidden costs-savings associated with MRO procurement.
The format for the event is a more traditional conference format on day one, with multiple presentations and discussions, while day two is an extended, practical workshop on best practice MRO management.
Below we shine the spotlight on two presentations taking place on day one:
Making the Business Case for investment in MRO management
By Roger McNeill Vice President Global Procurement, Incitec Pivot
The lifecycle management of materials and spare parts is critical to all but the purest services business.
What is purchased, when and in what quantities is almost always more important than the price paid.
Demand managed poorly can stop operations, overinflate the balance sheet, or worse create a millstone of hidden costs. So why do so many companies under invest in materials management?
Roger will kick off the inaugural PASA MRO conference discussing these issues, some approaches to attributing value and ideas for addressing them.
Embracing Agility to drive Competitive Advantage
By Sandeep Shetty Group Procurement Manager – Capital & Indirects, Bega Cheese Limited
Rapid changes in competition, demand, technology, and regulations have made it more important than ever for organizations to be able to respond and adapt quickly.
The key to success – or indeed survival – in this environment is enterprise agility.
Agility is one of the key characteristics that will help procurement functions to synchronize external and internal rates of change.
Sandeep’s presentation will focus on how to embrace Agility and align external and internal rates of change to gain competitive advantage and influence the top line growth of business. This session will also cover topics including:
- How can Procurement demonstrate Agility?
- The Four Pillars of Procurement Agility and its relevance in MRO Procurement
- Using Agility as a tool for fostering relationships with stakeholders
