The Procurement Initiative - Shaping the Future of Procurement
We founded The Procurement Initiative, to bring together the leading procurement thinkers from business, academia and management consulting, to find fresh answers to the most significant challenges in procurement.
Connecting procurement professionals, jointly developing the essential solutions, and building the future capabilities that have a positive impact on our economy, society, and the planet.
Research, knowledge, thinking. All with a purpose. The New Purpose of Procurement.
Shaping the Future of Procurement
Procurement must reinvent itself. Breaking out of the old world. Taking on more responsibility. To see oneself as an orchestrator who controls large processes and offers sustainable solutions. With suppliers as partners at eye level. And a shared vision for the big global issues.
