Participating in Procurement and Other Extreme Sports

By January 17, 2023July 21st, 2023No Comments

According to a 2020 study by BCG, 70 percent of transformation projects fall short of expectations. This means that transformations are more likely to fail than to succeed – and yet, digital is no longer just one approach to choose, at least when it comes to procurement. Digital is table stakes.

How should procurement proceed with digital transformation, knowing that the odds are stacked against them before they even begin the journey? If you ask Gavin Mlinar, Founder and CEO of Blacklisted Consulting and an extreme endurance athlete, having a balanced perspective on the concepts of success and failure can make all the difference. 

In addition to being an experienced procurement executive, Gavin is part of the Everest 29029 community. He has accepted the challenge of climbing the equivalent vertical feet of Mount Everest, 29,029 feet, in 36 hours. He knows all too well that you may have to fail 99 times before finding success or reaching your goals. 

Gavin will join us on Day 2 of Digital Outcomes to provide us all with ways to reframe our thinking so that no matter what happens, we will never ‘fail’ again.
