Procurement Transformation

Wednesday, 21 July 2021 | 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM AEST | Online

Enabling Operational Objectives with a Proactive, Diverse and
Resilient Approach to Procurement

2020 was a turbulent year for all corporate and operational services, but for supply chain and procurement functions, which have typically operated within a ‘set-and-forget’ mentality, and aren’t built to withstand disruption or demand volatility, it was especially challenging.

As the dust slowly begins to settle, supply chain and procurement professionals across the Australian Public Sector are taking the lessons learned from the last 18 months and embedding more proactive procurement approaches by building resiliency, accelerating digital innovation, and enhancing supplier relationships.

To help make your procurement transformation initiative a success we’ve put together the complimentary ‘Procurement Transformation’ virtual event which explores emerging tools, technologies and real-world case studies from public sector leaders.
