9:20 AM Interview with Live Polling - Getting in early: How procurement can secure a seat at the table to play a critical role in end-to-end business transformations

·         Exploring successful strategies for maximising procurement’s reporting lines to the upper echelons of the company to understand top-level priorities
·         Doing your homework: Understanding the value in taking the time to understand the challenges and goals of various business lines before engaging them
·         Identifying opportunities for opening early dialogues with business units about their upcoming projects in the next 24-36 months, and understanding how playing an active role before a project has even begun will afford you more time to prove your value on a longer-term basis
·         Demonstrating an understanding beyond potential suppliers, such as subject matter knowledge, compliance  awareness and an ability to ask the right questions, to ensure that procurement maintain a seat at the table throughout the entire lifecycle of a transformation or a product purchase, all the way through to post-implementation assessments and even renewal conversations
