Vision and Program Charter
Sustainable procurement programs often develop informally, the result of years of ad hoc, opportunistic activities. Rarely are program leaders invited to pick their heads up and think deeply about the future they are hoping to create through their organization’s purchasing. But organizations that establish bold, audacious visions find that having a vision in place is grounding and allows the program to take a more strategic approach. This session asks participants to build on the inventory developed in the previous session and take the time needed to develop a big vision for their sustainable procurement programs. With a draft vision in hand, participants will move on to more “practical” thinking with the development of a Program Charter, helping put more structure to how the program will achieve that big vision.
- Understand the importance of visioning to support sustainable procurement
- Draft a 5-year “big vision” for the sustainable procurement program
- Begin the development of a Program Charter, with the goal of building a detailed model of how the program will work, the impacts it will address, and the benefits it could realise
