A1: Supply Management enabling the chain with Industry 4.0 opportunities

Managing a complex supply chain network across many business partners is the day-to-day challenge for Hewlett Packard Enterprise Supply Chain to ensure fast and precise delivery of hundreds of customer orders per day. The application of big data, fast cross company system integration, cloud computing and other Industry 4.0 technologies enables continuous performance improvements, altogether halving cycle-times of complex solution orders over the last 3 years. These improvements are evolutionary ideas incubated by small working teams which when get elevated to EMEA and WW standards if successful.

B1: Purchasing and social impact / Doing the right thing / Social participation: an example

The Buyer, grid company Alliander in the Netherlands, wanted to contract 2 parties to have the new smart electricity and gas meters installed in Dutch households and companies (3 Million households). Part of the requirements in the tender, done with the Best Value Procurement (BVP) purchasing methodology, was the maximum result in terms of social inclusion that the parties could offer. BAM Infra, one of the Sellers came after careful internal consideration with a promise / commitment that was quite better than expected. The focus of the presentation is about inciting the creativity of the Seller, and how this has worked to get more people with physical and/or mental limitations into a core process.

Martijn has identified logistic parties with interest for the Blockchain like the harbor, financial institutions, international auction company. This initiative has led to a broad consortium of logistic, supply chain and financial parties that are going to do research how the Blockchain could work for them. The end goal will be to have several working Blockchain applications for logistics and finance in optimizing the whole supply chain. There are a number of use cases identified around finance that I will present. The research will be done with knowledge institutes with in-depth knowledge of blockchain (TU Delft) and Supply Chain Finance (Windehseim).

D1: Possibilities for our common future: relationships and shared dialogue to drive sustainable development….

The UN’s focus on SDGs is inspiring us to think about the possibilities, if we all engage together and drive these possibilities to reality. With the SDGs we are looking at transforming our world, and the UN and member states cannot do it alone. But transformation does not come from continuing to do the same-old, same-old, it comes from changing our approaches to problems, and providing innovative solutions to our joint clients, the people in need. It is about Procurement working with our stakeholders to envision the possibilities together and working to make them a reality.

E1: Moving away from the mainstream? A research project about how  companies are reconsidering their financial management to become part of the circular economy.

Our latest research project focuses on companies that have embraced the philosophy of circular economy.  In this philosophy, as little as possible waste is created during all life phases of products, which means the focus lies on sustainable production, optimal use (sharing and reuse) and recycling. These are commonly visionary companies that have thought of ways to tackle environmental problems by adopting innovative business models and new ways to interact with their customers. Not surprisingly, these companies are reconsidering how to attract capital and how to best manage their (financial) resources. We want to be part of this journey by doing research to share the key insights.

F1: Today’s Wicked World asks for Ambidextrous Leadership in Procurement

We all suffer from the increasing complexity in today’s globalised, volatile and interdependent world. Especially in Procurement we are increasingly confronted, both internally and externally, with conflicting interests and confusing challenges. Being a Procurement leader in this time flux is a challenge. Beyond technical expertise, today’s CPO needs to make strategic decisions in a changing dynamic environment. For example, we have to exploit efficiency in existing supply chains, while at the same time we are forced to explore new opportunities for innovation and capitalize on them. This necessitates inspired, authentic leaders capable of solving challenging business problems as a valued member of the C-suite. More than ever CPO’s have to demonstrate expertise in a broad range of areas, including regulation, globalisation, sustainability, technology, risk, transformation, stakeholder management, reporting, and, not at least, strategic talent management. In short, they need to be truly ambidextrous leaders.

In two interlinked workshops, we would first like to enable you to identify the wicked problems you are confronted with today and then to clarify what it demands from you as a procurement leader to tackle them. Are you courageous enough to become an ambidextrous leader? If so, join our Workshop!

A2: Supplier collaboration at the high tech frontier…..and beyond!!

ASML invents and delivers advanced technology for high tech Lithography, Metrology and Software to the Semiconductor industry. An ASML lithography system contains tens of thousands of parts and almost all of them are manufactured by our global network of suppliers. The speed of innovation is very high and the iterations required to deliver the required functionality to ASML’s customers are multiple. This poses several very specific demands on our supply chain. In this Best Practice session we will present our vision on supplier management. We intend to engage the participants in a dialogue with a panel of experts to explore some of our most pressing challenges – such as, how do you source what is not yet invented?

Various technological developments will flood and disrupt our society and our businesses. In this presentation seven future technologies will be investigated including their impact on our society in the coming two decades. Robots including Artificial Intelligence will take over at least 50% of the present jobs. Future 3D Printing technologies and possibly nano factories will completely change the way we manufacture and process products. What will this mean for our society and businesses 20 year from now? What should you do to be prepared for this coming technological tsunami?

C2: Procurement and Finance: An Evolution

Alignment between finance and procurement seems a natural enough partnership as there is cross over between metrics, numbers and processes. However, for procurement to build a strong alliance with CFOs, Treasury and Financial Control, CPOs and their teams must not only be able to put themselves in finance’s shoes and support their objectives but also go beyond the numbers.

D2: A New Approach to Preferred Provider Selection in Health Care

Since September 2013 Zilveren Kruis, the largest health insurer in The Netherlands, started a pilot for selecting preferred providers. The pilot used the principles of the Best Value Approach (BVA), a concept that focuses on replacing the traditional business model of  management, direction and control (MDC) with the utilization of expertise. In the BVA, the health care provider is in charge of defining key performance indicators for health care quality. Zilveren Kruis was the first worldwide to introduce the Best Value approach in selecting health care providers. In this session the lessons learned are shared. We will show how the BVA makes affordable quality the core topic in negotiations with providers.

E2: The Sense and Non-Sense of Early Supplier Involvement

Research shows that early supplier involvement helps companies to overcome uncertainty in the new product development process. However, new research shows that early involvement, by consulting suppliers in early phases of the development process, is not very important. Instead, carefully partitioning development tasks between the lead firm and its suppliers is what really drives innovation. In this session, we back these claims up with real case examples and scientific meta-analytical evidence. We look forward to a lively discussion about what this means for practice.

A3: Agile procurement: a paradigm shift?

Can the 4 values (just 68 words) of the “Manifesto for Agile Software Development“ trigger a similar paradigm shift in Procurement and transform its DNA to lead you into the new world of “As-a-Service” with its “endless” opportunities?
If Procurement wants to leverage the power of the “As-a-Service” economy, it will need to be ready to jump out of its comfort zone into a whole new world of value generating collaboration partnership: “Value Creation”, “Response to Change” and “Speed to Market” will be the new drivers.

B3: The Big Disconnect in Your Talent Strategy, and How to Fix It

Organizations today have become incredibly sophisticated in how they track and analyze almost every aspect of their business, save one — talent. By some estimates, up to 80% of companies lack a reliable picture of their total workforce. The result? An often chaotic system of ad hoc work arrangements that is invisible to most leaders. But how can this be, at a time when talent is increasingly the key differentiator in the market? It is time for a new playbook.
Join Mara Swan for a discussion on how employers can start applying the same level of sophistication to people management as they do to finance or other business critical areas — optimizing speed, quality, cost and flexibility to balance value across total investment.

C3: Win-win in OWC at Corporate and Supplier by using a bank’s capability

Supply Chain Finance allows suppliers access to additional funding sources without requiring additional credit facilities. Suppliers get their money early (reducing their DSO) while the bank provides financing for the period from collection to payment date. Financing cost is borne by the supplier and is usually lower than supplier’s cost of funds because supplier has access to a very competitive funding rate as Corporate is effectively sponsoring payment. Corporate extends its payment date (increasing DPO) creating a win-win solution. The additional non-financial benefits are usually supplier’s greatest advantage such as lower currency risks, improved credit rating, etc.

D3: Perform to outperform together

At Philips we are constantly working on improving our performance. As leader in the field of sustainability we are being seen and rewarded for our constant drive to improve people lives. This also means teaming up with suppliers helping them to become more sustainable but also more cost effective. Our strategic process to come to the right topics to deal with, did lead to 5 core programs very future oriented without losing our actual status quo. One of them is our Sustainable Performance program, where we stepped out of our comfort zone (auditing) and are now implementing a new approach based upon joining forces without penalties.

E3: Creating procurement value together: Collective creativity as a key competence

Over the past decade the procurement function has gained in strategic importance. Focus has shifted from cost-cutting towards value-creation. Procurement professionals find themselves dealing with more strategically-oriented activities such as delivering innovation output, connecting with suppliers in search for new ideas and offering new solutions to sourcing problems. This not only requires procurement professionals to explore and unleash their own creativity. Owing to the complex nature and dynamic of sourcing problems, procurement professionals must connect and share with other stakeholders from within and outside their own organization to do so. This workshop introduces the principles of collective creativity in procurement, shares insights from recent research and allows participants to exchange and discuss their own experience and viewpoints.

F2: Development of a Global Sourcing Framework

Five teams, each having similar (theoretical) capabilities, frameworks and data at their disposal, all work on a sourcing strategy. Chances are each team comes up with their own recommendations. How do we align between the frameworks to come to a more consistent development of the sourcing strategy? What decision logic is followed for each category, taking into account the strategic business objectives, current supplier performance and global supply markets? During the workshop we will provide answers to these questions.

F4: Supplier Rationalization – One stop shopping or spreading risks?

In today’s terms supplier rationalization is the optimization and prioritization of your supply base.  But the supplier landscape is changing with fewer companies each offering more categories and services. Also digitalization and data driven purchasing is growing rapidly and there is a growing number of marketplaces. This all doesn’t make the landscape easier to navigate for companies. Staples Business Advantage helps its customers by reducing complexity, taking costs out of the supply chain and acting as their trusted advisor to connect to and share; to simply make more happen. So what are the keys for a sustainable purchasing practice to help your business succeed and how do you find what is optimal for your company?
