Class summary

Come check out all of our procurement videos at The Big Ideas Summit 2015 – the world’s first digitally-led think-tank for procurement and supply chain professionals was held in London in April…and amplified to more than 5000 members of Procurious across 100+ countries.

The event sparked vigorous debate across social media and #BigIdeas2015 was mentioned 759 times in 24 hours (reaching a potential audience of 1m+).

On the key theme of risk and blind spots in procurement, keynote speaker Chris Lynch (CFO, Rio Tinto) spoke about fostering a culture of “intrapreneurship” within large organisations and understanding that the bigger your idea is, the more resistance it will face.

However he went on to state that by persisting with your idea, taking ideas from other sources, including suppliers, and showing the outcomes, you are more likely to succeed.

Learn what 'intrapreneurship' is and why it should be developed in large organisations
Learn the tips to getting your big idea supported and enabled
