Purchasing Culture 4.0
As companies go through major transformations, Purchasing has an increasing role to play in bringing to life Innovation, Circularity and the Internet of Things.
This is calling for changes not just in terms of process and skills, but also in terms of culture. Indeed, as digitalisation calls for a redefinition of how business competes, human interaction is paradoxically ever more essential.
This year, the Annual Conference will explore what Culture 4.0 means for Purchasing teams. Together we will investigate:
- How to lead your teams through such transformations
- How your people take the lead in making changes happen
- How to create an environment that support innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship
- How purchasing becomes more agile
- How to foster vibrant and fruitful relationships inside and outside the company
- How we welcome new generations of employees
