„In what direction is procurement going and at what speed?“
That was one of the big questions at this year’s World Procurement Congress.
„Speed is a question of direction,“ said Nandini Basuthakur, CEO of Procurement Leaders, in her opening speech at the Congress.
The answer was fiercely debated at the two-day event, which focused on finding ways in which function can provide a competitive advantage in a fast-paced world. This year’s World Procurement Congress in London once again brought together the purchasing elite from all sectors.
CPOs from Unilever, Heineken, Johnson & Johnson and Nokia talked about the direction of procurement, what projects they are working on and what the future will look like.
It’s about managing the uncertainty, coping with it. It’s about risk and sustainability – especially in the consumer goods industry.
