Lunch with our Leaders: Effective Procurement Models

Procurement departments and stakeholders are notorious for a myopic focus on savings. But how do successful procurement organisations drive top-line and bottom-line value to the businesses that they serve?

Below are the six key challenges that impact procurement; how well has Africa performed and what are the prospects for the continent:

  • Cost
  • Compliance
  • Transparency
  • Efficiency
  • Global Integration
  • People
