Nevi Webinar: Design Thinking in Procurement
The procurement transformation webinar series: part one.
Procurement has to do with wicked problems: tough and complex issues that are difficult to solve. And these complex issues require a new perspective. In this webinar, Guido Stompff will discuss the need for innovation within procurement and the use of the design thinking methodology, to solve these wicked problems.
Tijdens dit event komt het volgende aan bod:
The procurement transformation webinar series: what impact will the Corona crisis have on the future and how can innovation and transformation help us to shape this future?
The Global Value Chains are ‘broken’ and it will take a while before they are restored. Every country has its own regulations for and means of compensating businesses. This will influence the market in the long term and will not create an equal level playing field. How does this influence our Global Value Chains and how do we increase our independence and become a more flexible and (digitally) connected European sourcing and production network? We have developed a digital infrastructure which was desperately needed during this crisis. In the future there will be more pandemics and the transition we have started as a result of this one should continue. Innovation, transformation and digitisation are keywords for businesses and therefore also in procurement.
In the coming three webinars, we will share our perspective on the urgent need for transformation and innovation in procurement. Our first webinar provides insights in the methodology Design Thinking in Procurement. Our second webinar is about change management that is key to make the transformations a success. The closing webinar will focus on the next generation procurement profession as people can make the difference.
Part 1: Design Thinking in Procurement
As a procurement professional you regularly encounter them: tough and complex problems for which there is no ready-made solution. In an ever-changing world, issues like this need to progress faster and more innovative. Also when it comes to complex problems. And that requires an innovative view of the problem. But ingrained thinking patterns and bias ('that's how we always do it here') stand in the way of innovation and innovation. Design Thinking is a way of working that helps to solve organizational challenges faster and better. You can sign up for this first part of the series via "Inschrijven voor dit evenement".
