In this AOP Live session, Conrad Snover and Betsy Pancik from ProcureAbility will share ProcureAbility’s vision for the future of procurement, an organization that is viewed as a partner to the business, generates value beyond traditional measurements, and leverages technology and process optimization to increase strategic focus. Some of the topics they will cover include:
- People: What type of partner will procurement be in the future? What will our relationships look like and what skills will we need to be successful in this new paradigm?
- Process: As technology inevitably improves the efficiency of procurement’s tactical workload, what new activities will emerge in its place? To what extent will procurement be able to select our future scope of work, versus having responsibilities dictated to us by daily business needs?
- Talent: With the rise of workforce virtualization, the sky’s the limit when it comes to building out the future team. What precise mix of talent should be maintained in house and when is it best to leverage the specialization and flexibility of consultants or contingent workers?
- Results: Although savings will always be part of procurement’s value proposition, it is only the beginning of what we can offer. What other sources of value does the business need and what can procurement do to deliver against them?
