Optimising Procurement Strategic Spends

London Hilton Kensington HotelThe procurement function is undergoing a radical change.  No longer is procurement simply a back office, administrative function, but is fast-becoming a strategic part of the business.  Value is being demanded at every level and there is particular scrutiny on procurement.  Financial savings need to be made and quality levels improved; the efficiency of procurement is now seen as critical in moving the business forward and in this challenging economic climate, procurement professionals are being asked to do more with less.

Key conference topics will include:

  • Make better informed mission-critical decisions
