CPD 2Procurement has come a long way but for it to take its rightful place, it is time to move to the next level by driving shareholder and stakeholder value.

To achieve this, we must:

 

  • Understand and speak the language of the business and stakeholder, not just our traditional forte of cost, but also value, growth, etc
  • Drive the value in the entire value chain and for example enable suppliers to drive innovation and maximize business opportunities.
  •  Push the boundaries of value and be a solution for big societal issues (corruption, environmental, etc) and gain wider recognition.
  • Have procurement reporting into CEOs and at the most senior levels – it is happening in my organisation.
  •  Invest in the best people, identify, nurture and develop them, and give them the profile they deserve.

Good procurement is good for stakeholders and is good for society.

CPD 2This event will be led by two of Cornwall’s leading procurement professionals; Lisa Symons, Head of Procurement and Supplies (Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust) and Steve Sandercock of Cornwall Council. Each has a story to tell, of contracts that have been effective and efficient, and others less so. Our question for the evening is the role of local procurement and supply: when does this improve contracting, and when doesn’t it? We invite you to bring your own stories and views too: brief presentations will be followed by time for questions and debate, chaired by Dr Glynis Davies, joint chair, Devon and Cornwall branch
