New roles in an ongoing culture shift to agile, responsive and future-proof procurement. Summary: A synthesis of insights, best practices and a possible future of Procurement Transformation.
  3. 14:45
    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.

    People & Culture in Procurement

    Women in business

    Part-time leadership? Yes, it works out! In many companies, leadership roles are still rarely filled by women. One reason for this is often the inability to combine full-time work and family. But does it really have to be like this? In this panel, head of procurements talk about their personal experiences and show that job sharing models can also work wonderfully and what adjustments have to be made to achieve this. And what other reasons are there for a low proportion of women in leadership roles?
