Class summary

At the Big Ideas Summit 2017, we challenged our thought leaders to share their Big Ideas for the future of procurement.

Astellas Pharma’s Senior Director of Procurement Nick Jenkinson’s Big Idea for 2017 is 100% Value Creation.

With the advances in technology, Nick wants to see the removal of ‘non-value add’ activities in business and the core procurement role to be focussed on 100% value creation.

The introduction of AI and robotic automation means that steps that were viewed as necessary in procurement are now unnecessary.

By replacing these steps with technology, the procurement function becomes more relevant in future - focusing purely on adding to the bottom and top line of the business.
