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+).

Looking to the future, Chris Sawchuk, Principle and Global Procurement Advisory Practice Leader at The Hackett Group, spoke about organisational agility and the need for organisations to adapt and move quickly in a constantly-changing business environment.

From a procurement standpoint, Chris argued that it means learning from the likes of Uber and being more customer centric and delivering value beyond cost savings, while being more active in promoting itself as a function.
