Procurement is painful. The legislation isn’t the painful bit. It’s the policies and the culture these policies create. For years procurement has been a back office function (in fact the furthest of back offices) which was tasked with compliance checking and strict 17:00 Friday submission demands (do procurement people look at these submissions over the weekend?).
The digital age places new demands on traditional functions like procurement and finance. This demand is driven by:
– user-centred products and services
– customer value, and
– working in the open.
Some procurement teams have started to transform and gradually procurement is becoming less painful for its users. But we need many more to put their hands up and ask for guidance on becoming more agile. Let’s discuss how procurement functions can apply agile ways of working.
