As companies face growing complexity and experience vital transformations, Purchasing has a major role to play in helping them find opportunities and develop new competitive advantages.
During the next EIPM Annual Conference, we will explore how we can contribute to generate value in such a context and how Purchasing can transform complexity into an advantage.
Altogether we will look, amongst other things, at how to:
Develop an End to End understanding of value chains
Contribute to radically simplifying internal processes
Become a single point of contact for internal and external stakeholders
Establish partnerships with new players
Protect and support brands
Purchasing can turn market complexity, internal complexity and imposed complexities such as regulations and compliance matters to its advantage. It can anticipate and accelerate when required. It can both protect the business while empowering transformations.
This will lead us to examine the following questions:
What does it mean to innovate and generate value in such a context?
Should we measure our contribution to the transformation of our companies?
Can we find other ways to assess, benchmark and communicate our contribution to the success of our companies?
All these challenges are uppermost in the minds of CPOs and Executives in Europe and beyond.
Join us to answer these questions together with leaders and experts from industry, academia and consultancy.
A lot of diverse points of view and a nice place to exchange ideas on what is coming next.

The EIPM Annual Conference inspired me and my team to re-engineer procurement systems in the OMK. Since 2014 I annually take part in this event, that represents a source of best practices and business ideas for procurement. I am glad to participate on 6-7 December 2018. Join us!
