Nevi Webinar: Digitization
The third part of the procurement transformation webinar series.
Could the purchaser be replaced by an algorithm? Do digital technologies represent an opportunity or a threat to the procurement profession? Many claim that as buyers we can no longer live without it in a world that is becoming increasingly complex, unpredictable and volatile. Time to explore this together!
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 three webinars we will give our perspective on the urgency of transformation of 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 3 – Digitalisation: Could the purchaser be replaced by an algorithm?
As a procurement professional you will have noticed, the future of procurement will fundamentally change and become fully digital. At least, that is what various IT providers want us to believe. On closer inspection it is often more nuanced. It concerns a whole range of different digital technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented reality, Blockchain, RPA and Chatbots, each of which can have its own specific impact on purchasing and supply chain management. Do they represent an opportunity or a threat to the procurement profession? Many claim that as buyers we can no longer live without it in a world that is becoming increasingly complex, unpredictable and volatile. Time to explore this together!
