The procurement space is currently ripe for disruption. With the spotlight shining brightly on sustainable procurement, tougher regulations around modern slavery, and an increased focus on the bottom line for businesses globally, the procurement function is uniquely positioned to drive this disruption. The need for fresh, innovative solutions, going wide in thinking and borrowing ideas from outside functions, industries and geographies, has never been more imperative. If we focus on the areas that matter, then we are well positioned to fuel business growth over the next 10 years through procurement.
The role of the procurement function is changing at an unprecedented pace and leaders across Australia are excited to be driving strategic change within their organisations.
We spoke to more than 80 procurement professionals from 43 organisations across Australia who shared stories straight from the front-line of innovation and technology integration in procurement strategy.
