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!
