How to become a real business partner rather than an administrator replaceable by a robot?
Digitalization and automation are rapidly changing the world, impacting all areas of our lives and business. But what does it mean for procurement professionals? What does the procurement team or supply chain of the future look like? Those are only a few concerns we will discuss during the conference ‘Future of Procurement - How to become a real business partner rather than an administrator replaceable by a robot?'.
The Charted Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) invite you to participate in the event, during which most recent business news and market trends will be presented. New technologies and digital solutions are impacting almost every part of modern supply chain – CIPS members, together with senior representatives from top leading companies will host the discussion on digitalization and automation. How to automate your supply chain in a smart way? What are the possible solutions? Does one size fits all businesses?
The meeting will also focus on the challenge of personal development in the world of digital procurement. Elimination of waste and creation of lean and efficient process is only one side of the coin. To implement such solutions companies have to make sure that their procurement specialists are properly trained and aware of their new role in such dynamic environment. New situation in a procurement world calls for new set of skills – although machines and bots will perform bulk of the work but buyers behind them have to meet and exceed the expectations of their business partners. Let’s meet and discuss how to stay ahead of the curve.
