[Pod] Rethink, Reflect, Reexamine: Strengthening Global Procurement Operating Models w/ Jake Taylor

By May 14, 2023No Comments

“Organizations are asking, ‘For the next crisis – another pandemic, another supply disruption – can our organization be more resilient, and can we be better prepared? Not just from a policy or process or technology perspective but in terms of our operating model. Can we put more resources in the countries where we are doing our purchasing?”

Years of supply chain disruptions have caused global organizations to rethink the role of procurement – and procurement teams are doing some reflecting of their own. This is the time for procurement leaders to reexamine their operating model in preparation for the next potential crisis.   

In this episode, based on an AOP Live session, Art of Procurement’s Philip Ideson and Kelly Barner are joined by Jake Taylor, Senior Director of Advisory at ProcureAbility. He provides his view on how leading procurement organizations are realigning themselves with the business and reinforcing that alignment with their operating model.  

Jake answers questions on topics such as:

  • The pros and cons of various procurement operating models
  • Change management considerations that will put operating model adjustments into context
  • Actionable insights that will help you make purposeful changes to your procurement operating model
