BravoSolution Real World Sourcing – Quick Wins for the New Procurement Leader

On Wednesday 25th November we will be holding our final BravoSolution Real World Sourcing event of 2015, with me leading the session. The topic for our workshop is “Quick Wins for the New Procurement Leader” and it is aimed at everyone from category managers to CPOs who find themselves in a new role and realise – quite sensibly – that they need to make an impact and impress people quickly!

And that is important. These days, few of us have the luxury to take six months to settle in and then think about that we’re going to deliver to our organisations. Within weeks, whether this is a job in a new organisation or just a internal move, I can assure you that your lovely colleagues (including your boss) are talking about you and saying things like “what do you think of the new chap” or “how is she doing in that new role”? You need to make an impact.

So we will be looking at five key areas where it is often feasible to show rapid achievement and success. A couple we suspect many of you might predict; a couple might be more surprising as suggestions. We will also look at the balance between the short term and longer term goals and objectives. Whilst quick wins are important, clearly they must not screw things up for years to come!

The session will be interactive, with some delegate involvement, (we might even have a few prizes as it is almost Christmas), and takes place at the Jugged Hare restaurant near the Barbican in London (in a private room of course). We know that the thirty or so professionals who attend these sessions also enjoy the chance to meet other procurement practitioners over the very good lunch.

We start at 11 for 11.30am, the workshop runs until about 12.30, then discussion over lunch and we wrap up by 2pm. There are a handful of places still available, and you can book here for a very reasonable fee. (As well as encouraging those who have booked to actually turn up, that contributes to the Real World Sourcing Scholarship – more about that here.)

See you on the 25th!
