COVID-19 & the Future of Procurement

The COVID-19 pandemic has put an enormous strain on global supply chains, at times halting manufacturing while shutting down airports and seaports, interrupting delivery of raw materials and finished goods. At the pandemic’s onset, procurement departments switched to crisis-management mode to help companies alleviate disruptions, including sourcing personal protective gear for employees and helping smaller suppliers manage their cash flow.

This 1-hour LinkedIn Chat will explore the crucial role that procurement is playing in the Covid19 pandemic and try to imagine what the future of procurement will look like.

We will be discussing following questions during the LinkedIn Chat:

Q1: Looking at the strategic evolution of procurement, what are some of the emerging trends that have been driven by COVID?

Q2: How important is it to celebrate successes even during times of challenges?

Q3: With the notion of a ‘new norm’, can procurement ever go back to what it was pre-pandemic?

Q4: What will be the ‘new norm’ for the Chief Procurement Officer?

Q5: Will Covid-19 define the future of procurement?
