What lies ahead in 2022 for procurement leaders? We’ve asked five of the world’s top procurement leaders to share their insights on what 2022 may have to hold. The contributions from Senior Procurement leaders from Walgreens, Primark, Co-Op, Ingram Micro Cloud, and The Crown Commercial Services offer interesting perspectives on the disruption and opportunities that the pandemic has afforded businesses and procurement teams.
There are three themes that crop up consistently in their insights:
- The importance of people – it’s been a tough 18 months for people. We’re all still trying to figure out the best ways of hybrid working, and getting this balance right will continue in 2022
- The changing dynamic of procurement – it’s clear that procurement has the opportunity to play an increasingly strategic role in the direction of businesses, and 2022 should be the moment when procurement leaders step up
- New values, new skills – in years gone by, procurement was often measured purely in cost savings. It’s clear that value is becoming broader – just look at the sustainability conversation where increasingly decarbonization is the value that matters
