Today Change Management makes it possible for purchasing professionals to develop culture and competence in order to capitalise on the promises of sourcing capabilities and e-procurement solutions within modern business organisations. Global Procurement is the key to success by ensuring companies are able to reduce costs, increase efficiency and strengthen long term competitiveness in the international marketplace.
As the sourcing network extends to reach suppliers in both Eastern Europe and the Far East, Change Management becomes an essential strategic tool to minimise risks and to really adapt new business opportunities in the 21st century.
According to an independent research institute supply chain expenses consume 10 percent to 20 percent of revenues at most companies. By optimising global procurement there is a tremendous potential to save money and make your company more competitive. Through a continuous learning process to ensure e-procurement usage across the organisation, Global Procurement will be able to integrate both internal and external users in the process to optimise your sourcing reliability.
This international one day conference will focus on Change Management as a strategic approach to optimise the usage of e-procurement within global organisations. Our top level speaker panel with companies in the frontline will guide you through the steps to optimise global procurement enabling your organisation to stay ahead of competition in an international business environment.
