In a world where consumers can make purchases at the touch of a button, delays are no longer an option.

Are you balancing value and risk while improving experience-centricity? That’s the question chief procurement officers need to ask themselves. Because businesses are facing unprecedented change and disruption. And for some organisations, their very existence is under threat — especially in the new reality.

Consumerisation, increasing regulations and shifts to outcome-based pricing are just a few reasons procurement leaders are re-evaluating their strategies. Then there’s the impact of automation and analytics, self-service, and a myriad of user-friendly processes, policies and procedures. Add to this the ever-present pressure to do more with less, and it would appear the role of procurement is shifting dramatically with a focus on adding value.

In the face of continuous change, one thing is certain: the procurement organisation of tomorrow must disrupt itself to grow or get left behind.
