23rd EIPM Annual Purchasing Conference

6 December - 7 December

Event Navigation

Generating Value out of Growing Complexity:

Mastering it, Leveraging it

Today, as companies focus on Digitalisation and Business Model Innovation, we would like to explore what contribution to building new competitive advantage should be expected from procurement teams.

Are we expected to build partnerships with new players? Should we support the development of digital and IoT solutions? Do we need to bring together capabilities that support product-service hybrid?


Why do we need to measure value today?

In this context, we need to explore what measurement system and other practices can help us stir Purchasing Organisations in the right direction.

Should we try to measure our contribution to the final business outcomes? Should we create more shared targets with other teams? Are we in need of a few indicators that can help us see if our transformation goes in the right direction?
