Presenter: Christian Lanng, CEO and Co-Founder, Tradeshift
Procurement leaders have for too long struggled to get heard within the business, too often viewed as roadblocks or bureaucratic. While delivering savings and standardisation to the business is an important part, there is much more that procurement can offer to generate strategic value. We at Tradeshift believe procurement is a new platform for change and innovation.
The speed of change is quickly distinguishing the leaders from the followers. Whether it’s a process, a new technology or a new product, the ability to change fast is critical and procurement plays an important role. Additionally, there is no single company with as much innovation capacity as all its suppliers combined and procurement is the gatekeeper to this invaluable resource.
Join entrepreneur and Tradeshift’s CEO Christian Lanng as he shares his vision for procurement.
