AGENDA FOR GSA’S STRATEGIC SOURCING SUMMIT
ARM YOURSELF TODAY WITH THE KNOWLEDGE SKILLS FOR TOMORROW’S SOLUTIONS
Top performing companies no longer work in departmental silos. To deliver value to the business and adapt to change anywhere close to the speed it is impacting businesses, then organisations need a more blended approach that transcends the business, finance, technology and procurement, whilst keeping customer experience front and centre.
This is no mean feat, but at the GSA are we seeing some great examples of success, where companies are managing to reengineer their traditional operating models to enable them to become more flexible and versatile and compete more directly, and also partner, with the new digital first organisations that are being launched and encroaching on their market share. We see this work centre around the strategic sourcing function. Our research shows that the best performing organisations have a recognised strategic sourcing function.
We are holding a one day event in Northern Ireland - winner of the GSA’s sourcing delivery destination of the year 2018/19 – to explain the changes we are seeing and to provide guidance on how individuals and organisations can adopt the best practices of the future.
No one business can do everything themselves. Success is all about partnership and collaboration and we believe it is imperative for enterprise buyers and their service providers to have more mutually aligned objectives. This one day conference has been specifically designed to cover off the trends and thought leadership, as well as learning requirements, for both the strategic sourcing decision makers and practitioners on the buy-side, but also those involved in delivery across all levels within the service provider community.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
This conference is relevant for professionals across a myriad of roles, but where they are keen to understand how to add more value back to their organisation (and clients and end customers) by better collaborating with other departments internally or better managing relationships with external partners.
The morning session will cover off the latest trends impacting the business from a sourcing perspective and the changes organisations need to think about in order to not just survive but thrive.
The afternoon session will provide a top level overview of the skills (and the how-tos) every strategic sourcing professional needs to master in order to excel in their careers and provide the ultimate value to their employers and their employers’ customers.
AIM OF THE EVENT
The aim of the event is to create a forum to provide professionals at all levels with an understanding of how the industry is changing and to arm them with the latest tools and skills so they can better shape the solutions of tomorrow.
Our intent is that attendees will be comprised of teams of individuals from organisations and partnerships, who can work and evolve together. The agenda and attendance packages are structured with that intent in mind.
