The Human Factor - Strategic procurement and the leaders of tomorrow
Our speaker Simon Whatson, Principal at Efficio, will present the results of our latest major research study "The Human Factor - Strategic procurement and the leaders of tomorrow". This year’s research will explore how a more tech-savvy, collaborative and strategically minded future procurement workforce will ultimately require a reshape of organisational design, and serve as much as a driving force of transformational change to the procurement function, as technology itself. This event will also provide the opportunity to network with senior industry professionals and exchange experiences across sectors.
