About this talk

A candid conversation with Dr. Klaus Richter, former Chief Procurement Officer at Airbus and BMW, and Samir Bodas, CEO of Icertis, about the keys to keeping procurement out in front, now and into the future. For today’s procurement leaders, delivering on the needs of the business via cost savings and optimized supplier delivery, while also investing in forward-looking innovation and strategic supplier relationships, can feel like a precarious balancing act. Succeeding in this highwire act requires a new mindset and targeted investments in the people, processes, and technology to drive a holistic approach to business-centric digitally transformed procurement. Key topics for expert discussion include: · First-hand experiences guiding high-impact procurement transformations at some of the most iconic businesses in the world; · Data Is king, but which data is emperor and how to strategically digitize to manage risk, drive value, and effectively innovate; · How to manage the additional weight of supply chain disruption and new demands driven by ESG and changing customer sentiment.
