Defining Procurement Success (Joint event with CMI NEYH, CIBSE Yorkshire and Proxima)

October 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Webster’s dictionary defines success in a fairly straight forward way – an accomplishment, or meeting of an aim or objective.¬†Success in the procurement field, however, is a more nebulous concept. Perhaps that’s because procurement’s objectives aren’t usually clearly defined. Or perhaps, more accurately, it’s because procurement’s objectives are defined quite differently by its practitioners and the business leaders they serve.

Regardless of the sector in which you work this event will be of interest, being clear about what you want, regardless of whether equipment or service, is key to business success. This event will provide the opportunity to explore with experts in the field of procurement.

Join us for a discussion on procurement trends and how enlightened organisations are unlocking the hidden potential within their suppliers.
