Webinar: Value Thinking in Procurement


Webinar Value Thinking in Procurement banner


Procurement has evolved since many years now from being a very ‘Transactional’ department to building ‘Sourcing Strategies’ to being considered as a Key partner in ‘Value creation’ for companies. In many companies though, Procurement is still judged on performance of Hard Savings, fortunately or unfortunately, Can these Hard Savings be communicated as ‘Value creation’ ? What does Value actually mean for Procurement.

Further, what are the different ways in which Procurement can create and add Value? How do we inculcate the ‘Value Thinking’ approach in our teams ? And How do we communicate with our Key Internal Stakeholders about this approach.

This webinar will explore the above questions and encourage discussion from the participants about their views on Value Thinking.




Main Discussions

  • What does ‘Value’ mean for Procurement ?
  • Value Thinking in Upstream (eg: Value Engineering) and Downstream (eg: Value Analysis and Supplier Development) Procurement
  • What are some simple ways to add Value ?
  • Changing the perception of Procurement by effective communication
