The Content – in 14 Segments*

This workshop includes recent eclectic contributions to international thought leadership in the profession fused with established procurement theory and real-life examples from a library of around 50 case studies available to support the delivered programme.

Throughout the programme, you can compare a genuinely strategic approach to a developed but still transactional procurement effort. 

Participants will gain a thorough vision of what STRATEGIC procurement looks like today in leading organisations, through the lens of many examples of best practices harvested from all around the world.

Importantly, participants will also get to consider the lessons of the COVID-19 pandemic for the supply side, and how to both manage the consequences now and mitigate risks for the future.
