SESSION 2: MODERATED BY DELOITTE
Topic: How to address procurement-related risks in a highly complex world
In a world where complexity is ever-increasing, a world where traditional workforce models may be something of the past, a world where technology is shaping the pace of our business change – in that world procurement cannot and will not stay behind.
If there were one word to describe the scenario CPOs are facing today, it would be complexity. Both in the world out there, as within the walls of the company. And organizations facing a lot of complexity actually thrive in this dynamic world.
- Economic downturn (42%), internal complexity (39%), and managing risk within mega-suppliers (37%) are the most often mentioned risks organizations face
- Most CPOs (61%) feel procurement-related risks have increased over the last 12 months
- Organizations that are subject to a lot of external complexity (i.e. complexity masters) are far more willing to address top risks (58%) than organizations who operate in a world of lesser complexity (41%)
