Understanding the levers of value

How can procurement unlock value to influence and increase shareholder value? What are the main tools at its disposal to help increase profit and improve competitive advantage? In this Procurement Leaders Masterclass, delegates will spend the day debating what we mean by the term ‘value creation’ and what procurement can do to increase it.

During the day-long session, we will investigate how procurement can create value in four crucial areas – the top line, the bottom line, financial deliverables and risk.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Cash flow and working capital optimization
  • Product and process innovation
  • Sustainability
  • Supply, supplier and financial risks
  • Category management & indirect spend
  • Procurement outsourcing
