Procurement 2025: Is digital transformation driving more effective procurement?

The next meeting of the German Procurement Leadership Club will take place on 6th June at the Hotel Atlantic Kempinski in Hamburg. Wolfgang Rüth, Principal at Efficio, will present our new large-scale study on digital procurement. Efficio interviewed 225 senior procurement professionals from Germany, the UK and US, in cooperation with Cranfield University, to determine their view of the digital procurement landscape and its impact on their organization.

Wolfgang’s presentation will be rounded off by Dr. Christoph Seyfarth from TALENTspy. We are delighted to be joined by Christoph, an internationally recognized expert in the fields of digital procurement and procurement optimization.

Following the presentations, we will discuss the opportunities and challenges that digital transformation offers. There will be further opportunity for exchanging experiences and networking at an exclusive dinner afterwards.
