At the same time, procurement units are reaching their limits - there can hardly be any ""business as usual"". A complete rethinking is required, which can make procurement a success driver in the company. The speakers will provide insights into which of the hot topics are now being focused on by procurement units at the strategic-tactical level. They will show how to get out of the bottleneck and cost trap.

    14:00 Talent Scarcity: How contingent workforce management needs to adapt

    Procurement plays an essential role in sourcing contingent workers. According to forecasts, global talent shortages will lead to 85 million unfilled jobs worldwide by 2030. The lack of suitable talent for permanent employment, as well as the need for a more agile and flexible workforce, is the reason why more and more companies are turning to contingent workers to fill important gaps. In our masterclass, you will learn how other companies have adapted their procurement to counteract the shortage of skilled workers. Learn how to: • Recruit talent more efficiently and with less risk • Adapt KPI / Service Level to changing business environments • Assess talent faster and more accurately • Manage difficult job categories such as temporary workers, freelancers, and shift-based workers

In today’s world: How do Senior Partner Key Accounts maintain their relationship with Management Boards and (finally) even Procurement? How do tender processes and pitches unfold in the remote environment? And just how smart is it really to negotiate the final price against a camera? Dr. Franziska Seewald (Siemens) and Gregory N. Vider (apadua) explore these and other pointed questions in their Masterclass that is being held as a top-secret fireside chat. New Normal Reloaded. All killer, no filler.

    How to thrive during digital disruption

    We all know that technology - and in particular, artificial intelligence (AI) - is changing the world. But many of us are a bit hazy on what AI is. Calum will start his talk by clearing up - in everyday language - some of the common confusions about AI, machine learning, and so on. He will explain how AI has become so powerful, and assess the state of the art today. He will make some observations about the near-term impact of digital disruption on the procurement profession. How can we all thrive during this period of digital disruption? Calum will argue that companies must become more ABLE: Automated, Business model agnostic, Lateral thinking, Empowering. As individuals, we must get more REAL: Resilient, Excited, Agile, Lifelong learners. He rounds off this fascinating talk with some thoughts about where AI will take us all in the course of this century, and how we can avoid dystopia, and aim for a world which is not utopia, but ""protopia"".

    10:30 How much negotiation competence and culture does a professional purchasing organisation need? How is it measured and how can performance be optimised?

    The most difficult negotiations are currently on the agenda. From massively rising energy and raw material prices, shortages to stricter regulations. Negotiators are faced with unprecedented complexity. This requires a new level of knowledge and methodological competence. And it is not enough to have a few "negotiating talents" in one's own ranks. Individual competence must be transformed into an organisational capability. Negotiation is more than personal talent. It depends on an organisation's willingness to build teams and continue to build competence that achieves successful negotiation results. In this masterclass you will learn how immensely important a powerful negotiation culture is to develop and improve commercial effectiveness.

    11:00 More strategy, more added value: Würth purchasing reloaded

Timmy Lack, Head of Sales at the Würth subsidiary Wucato, explains how the Würth Group managed to turn its procurement inside out with the help of a digital platform solution. The centralized solution has fundamentally changed the role of group purchasing: more strategy, more added value.

In our Masterclass, speaker Eric Huxhagen shows you how: • Provide and manage the increasing demand for training in the company from any location with a provider-independent platform, • our customers were able to reduce their process costs around the procurement and management of external training by up to 80% and • you can exploit the full savings potential of the CET product group with an electronic punch-out catalogue.

With the help of some practical examples, we show how diverse this topic can be.

  4. 15:00
    Panel discussion

    „Sustainability versus Saving“ - how does procurement balance the challenge between sustainability and cost reduction

    The sole focus on quality, service level and cost aspects have long since ceased to be sufficient criteria. Sustainability measures (to reduce CO2 emissions) as a criterion in sourcing decisions or in the selection of suppliers have become intrinsically important, but they pose major challenges for purchasing departments. The necessary tools, skills and data are lacking. At the same time, prices on the procurement markets are exploding. How exactly this difficult task is mastered by CPOs will be discussed in this panel.
  5. 15:45
    Presentation

    What impact does the current situation in the markets have on leadership and staff skills?

    Higher purchase prices in all dimensions, increased regional sourcing, supply chain legislation, raw material shortages, CO2 reduction. All these developments have an impact not only on the purchasing strategy, but also on leadership and skills of employees in the purchasing teams. This is exactly what we will discuss in this panel with leaders from different industries.

    14:00 Automating Procurement Processes via EDI and SRM - Implementation Dos and Don'ts

    To guarantee punctual and complete deliveries, streamlined communication between customers and suppliers is essential - especially given current supply chain volatility. Neither paper nor PDF-based processes are well suited for this, as neither allows for real system-to-system integration. On the other hand, EDI and web-based processes in which orders, delivery notes, invoices, etc. are automatically exchanged between customers and suppliers can be hugely beneficial. In this presentation we examine specific examples to show how EDI and supplier relationship management can be set up between customers and suppliers and where businesses typically go wrong. By the end you’ll understand the most important dos and don'ts when it comes to electronic procurement.
