Strategic Procurement (3A): Driving a High Velocity Procurement Transformation
Transformation – big or little, total or partial – is of the essence as we adapt to meet the demands of the competitive business environment. How fast can we go? Chris Shanahan believes that “if you’ve got time enough to ask the question, you’re not going fast enough!” He will outline key considerations, including:
- Depth of executive support,
- Level of stakeholder trust,
- Consistency of processes,
- Strength of the talent base,
- State of systems and enabling infrastructure, and
- Leading practices.
These have to be evaluated, if you are going to get on the fast track. He has questions to answer in each of these areas that will help you get through your transformation faster.
