WHAT

Smart Sourcing & Supply Management Conference

Where Procurement gathers annually in SA. This conference addresses the volatility of the business world examining procurement trends and identifying best-practice processes for organisations. The conference takes on a think tank approach for CPOs and procurement professionals in private sector.

 

 


WHY

The headwinds confronting the South African economy are such that they might better be characterised as an economic perfect storm. South Africa has been rocked by news that it has slipped into a recession after its gross domestic product (GDP) declined 0.7% during the first quarter of 2017.

Time to get the answers!

  • So where are we going as an industry? What is the future of the profession? Organisations do not exist in isolation and are influenced by external factors outside of its control. How do you successfully navigate external forces that affect business performance from a procurement perspective?
  • A recent CPO study indicated that 62% of CPOs believe their teams don't have the skills to deliver the function's strategy. How can CPOs develop an outcome-focused capacity strategy roadmap for their teams?
