From the Amazon to the Moon: The Possibilities for Procurement

Today we are faced with complex supply chain challenges. In fact, it is hard to think about an area of business that modern procurement doesn’t touch – employment law, climate change, human rights…and now social media at the epicenter of a storm created by the exploding digital landscape, which is causing many industries to pivot.

As the complexity of our supply chains have increased, so too have the number of issues we need to deal with. Most of these are too big for any one person – or even any one company – to solve alone. In this session, you will gain an understanding of (1) why procurement needs to work more closely and on a global scale, (2) how networks and social media will help the profession get ahead of issues, (3) why procurement is still in need of a brand makeover, and (4) how you can help.
