10:10 AM WORKING GROUP 2: The Need For Speed: Creating An Agile And Quick Procurement Function

Let's face it: speed is not a trait often associated with procurement, a highly process-oriented function - but in a fast-moving and disruptive era, stakeholders may not always be most concerned with the procurement team's ability to scour the globe for the cheapest possible supplier. Many modern enterprises place a higher value in a procurement team that is agile, nimble and can respond quickly to immediate needs. In this working group, hone your ability to respond quickly, react vigorously and shed the old stereotypes.

3:55 PM Panel: Breaking the Mold: Re-Shaping Your Operating Model

The operating model your procurement function follows can impact savings and business goals at your organization in a big way -and as your enterprise evolves so must its procurement model. Centralization can often provide higher savings, while procurement teams in a decentralized model can often bring about better supplier relationships - and the hybrid model? Well, what does that really look like? In this panel discussion, explore the pros and cons of varied operational models. Learn how to decipher what's really right for your function, and how to break the mold and make it happen.
