Procurement Leadership Agenda and Narratives (PLAN) for 2023 & Beyond
As procurement leadership undertakes the planning process for 2023, CPOs and the procurement teams are dabbling with multiple competing priorities. From Cognitive Procurement solutions enabling better decision-making, and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) automating mundane, repetitive tasks, to the emerging next-gen technologies that drive major changes in how organizations operate and procure.
This demands a radical shift in outlook to design a perfect Procurement agenda to reinforce itself as a center of gravity for value creation and strategic leadership from being a mere enabling function.
While Procurement functions need to build a strong relationship with Tier 1 suppliers and develop capabilities aligned to Environmental, Social, and Corporate governance (ESG) goals, Enterprises need to develop core capabilities (data quality, data governance, in-house skills & competency, and change management) to derive maximum value from the implementation of next-generation procurement technologies.
