The use of Behavioural Science in Procurement to enable digital procurement adoption

The entry ticket to any digital procurement design and implementation is the technical skills and processes and requisite systems in which to deploy and maintain the platform. However, far more critical are the people to this endeavour that will change and transform not only the way the organisation works but how people work in your organisation in the future. Therefore, the key focus and where all the benefits will truly derive from is the speed and extent to which people adopt the new ways of working. Focusing on adoption by the business teams not the programme team should be every CPO’s big five agenda items: The Behavioural Procurement (Science) led adoption roadmap as a critical key enabler.

Technology in procurement

What technologies are successful CPOs using to make their procurement fit for the future?

10:00 Artificial intelligence for data-driven definition of procurement strategies

It is the goal of any procurement organisation to conclude the best possible framework agreements with suppliers in order to achieve economies of scale, among other things. Furthermore, the continuous replenishment of components purchased in addition must be ensured in order to avoid stoppage in production, for example. The collaborative project, "Artificial intelligence for data-driven definition of procurement strategies" between Microsense GmbH and the Institute for Logistics and Business Management at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) seizes on these challenges and addresses them using applications from the artificial intelligence sector. A concept is being developed that determines customer-specific requirements on the basis of structured data and the use of machine learning applications and then determines appropriate procurement strategies. This means that the best possible conditions can be achieved with suppliers, and delivery bottlenecks or even failures can be avoided.

13:30 Procurement Excellence – developing a Procurementfunction towards "Top Notch”

A bit more than 3 years ago, Grünenthal redefined its procurement organization as a global function. After the first year, which was mainly focused on delivering savings, we began to draw our excellence-roadmap and to develop the function step by step to become a top-notch procurement organization. In the past 2 years, we set the basis in topics as Supplier Relationship Management, Category-Strategies, a tailored taxonomy, dashboards and KPIs to steer the function, a Procurement Academy or the digitalization of our processes – to name just a few. Now we arrived in the most important and also most challenging part of our journey: to move a whole procurement organization to adapt it’s way of working towards new standards and raised requirements.
