Heads of Procurement

Experience the value of professional sparring

Who do you seek support from in your everyday life?
As head of procurement, you are important to the business, and are required to create and deliver measurable value.

VALUABLE RELATIONSHIPS

A peer network is vital for new ideas

Your role in procurement is multi-faceted – you need to make sure the right products are purchased, in the right quantities, at the right price and at the right time. It requires constant thought and a focus on assessing how best to optimize the value-adding functions of the business. At the same time, you need to master the ability to build and maintain key partnership relationships, as well as creating a pervasive trust, as you assist the business in ensuring that monetary resources are managed wisely. If you work in procurement, you are undeniably an important player for the company.

Sometimes you can get stuck in the same thoughts, considerations and routines – most people know this. For this reason, it can make sense to seek advice and sparring from others, which can ultimately help to renew motivation for your daily work.
