Procurement Influence and Impact

Presenter: Paul Vincent, Vice President of Global Talent Supply Chain Strategy, KellyOCG
About the webinar
Procurement functions have an ongoing struggle to be recognised as a strategically important piece of the organisational jigsaw. No-one struggles with the notion that their organisation needs to spend money wisely but many people will challenge the idea that only professional procurement people can do it. After all people spend money every day – do you need to be professionally trained before you can buy a house or a car?
Many executives and senior managers find it difficult to assess the true effectiveness of their in-house purchasing activity and typically this is because so often ‘purchasing performance’ is situational and dependent upon how well individuals can exercise softer as well as commercial and technical skills. Commercial and technical skills will always remain very important, but increasingly it is change management skills which will be the biggest contributing factor in success. In this webinar participants will hear a range of insight about:
- How to identify and focus on what matters most to your internal stakeholders
- What a change-management mind-set means for procurement professionals
