Icertis webinar highlights future of procurement innovation

Icertis CEO Samir Bodas and former Airbus and BMW CPO Dr Klaus Richter discuss how to master the procurement leader balancing act in new webinar

Procurement leaders can gain valuable insights in the upcoming webinar ‘The CPO Highwire: Balancing Performance and Innovation in the Face of Competition, Geopolitics and Pandemics’.

Broadcast on 23 June, attendees can catch candid conversation between Icertis CEO and Co-founder Samir Bodas and industry legend Dr Klaus Richter, former Chief Procurement Officer at Airbus and BMW.

The webinar will share their views on how to keep procurement out in front – now and in the future.

Procurement leaders have always had to perform a balancing act, but now they are taking to the highwire blindfolded and in some cases with the proverbial one arm tied behind their backs. Delivering on the needs of the business via cost savings and optimised supplier delivery, while also investing in forward-looking innovation and strategic supplier relationships, has never been as complex as it is today.

The webinar will address key challenges and provide smart solutions, such as investing in the people, processes, and technology to drive a holistic approach to business-centric digitally transformed procurement.
