The Spend Sessions Podcast, Episode 5: How to Lead Successful Digital Transformation in Procurement

 

Amanda Prochaska has led procurement transformations from both sides of the fence - firstly as a senior sourcing leader at companies such as MGM Resorts and Kraft-Heinz and then latterly through her consultancy Wonder Services.

  • Why 70% of digital transformations still fail and how she helps companies ensure they’re in the other 30%
  • The key elements of change to focus on when leading a digital transformation of a procurement organization
  • Why she founded the Global Women Procurement Professionals group and its mission

The Spend Sessions Podcast, Episode 4: Building the Procurement Function of Tomorrow

 

When Kantar was bought out by Private Equity from previous owners WPP, Chief Procurement Officer Steve Day had the opportunity to start from scratch and create a modern sourcing organization from the ground-up. The result was a new type of operation that prioritizes speed and agility over cumbersome manual legacy processes and gives a view into how the procurement model of the future should look, combining best-of-breed technology with new talent and people, brought up in a digital-first world.

In conversation with Globality's Seth Catalli, Steve discusses: 

  • How he has built a new type of sourcing team with a focus on different skills and backgrounds to those traditionally associated with procurement.
  • Why procurement must do more than just cut costs and needs to deliver more strategic value across the enterprise.
  • His desire to develop a more diverse supplier base and the progress Kantar has made. 
  • How he set-up an offshore procurement Center of Excellence to automate manual work and elevate the function's business impact.

In the past it was often said that procurement had all the spend but none of the power. So we need to become a good business partner, not just taking out costs but also adding strategic value.”

Fireside Chat with Globality CEO Joel Hyatt and HFS Research CEO Phil Fersht

Learn more about the unique opportunity procurement has to use performance spending to enable a company’s ESG strategy and help create a more sustainable and inclusive world.

Why Procurement Has a Unique Opportunity to Enable a Company’s ESG Strategy

During his keynote session at DPW2021, Globality Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO Joel Hyatt discussed with HFS Research CEO and Founder Phil Fersht how CPOs can impact one of today’s top corporate priorities. Here we outline the key elements of this new vision for performance spending:

“Procurement has always been asked to deliver on the core value proposition of identifying high-quality suppliers at a good price, but CPOs and other procurement leaders are increasingly required to help advance a company's all-important ESG strategy. CEOs are not only talking about ESG – they've done that for a while – but they are now prioritizing company performance against stated goals.

And the reason they care so much about it is because it turns out that all their stakeholders – investors, shareholders, employees, and customers – care about it. So procurement is being asked to help, which makes a lot of sense because the biggest asset a company has to advance its ESG agenda is how it spends its money. As a result, procurement now has a second core value proposition that it needs to deliver on. How can it do this? The answer is very simple – by using sophisticated AI-powered technology.

DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY TO DRIVE TRANSFORMATION
Digitalization is the enabler, adding value to both procurement’s traditional focus on costs and supply, and the top new priority: ESG. In fact, we can put them together under a new framework termed ‘performance spending’. This means the impact that procurement can have today is far greater than it has traditionally enjoyed, making it a very exciting time to be in the sourcing industry. So how can procurement leaders lead the revolution and put this digital transformation into practice at their own companies?

For the most part, CPOs want to transform the way they source goods and services, even though change management is hard and transformational innovation is tough. CPOs want a seat at the table, and they want to have a meaningful impact on their company’s overall performance, but they don’t currently feel empowered to do it.

That’s why this framework of performance spending and understanding how AI-powered digitalization can lead the transformation is critical – it means CPOs now have the ability to deliver what nobody else in the company can.

IMMEDIATE IMPACT ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM LINE
With Globality’s AI-powered Platform, the CPO of a global enterprise with $6 billion a year services spend can walk into the CFO’s office and say I've got a billion dollars for you in immediate costs savings, which you can take to the bottom line or reinvest elsewhere. That sum is obtained by capturing enormous efficiencies, making OPEX savings, and delivering faster speed to market, all thanks to new digital technology.

They can then walk straight down the hall to the CEO, and say, “I can have a bigger impact on this company's ESG strategy than anybody”, because how a company spends its money drives performance on sustainability and creates more inclusive economies and better governance by building an ecosystem that's transparent, fair and open to all.

ENTERPRISE SPENDING FOR GOOD (ESG)
ESG used to be simple. The E rated a company's carbon footprint and its own environmental practices, the S referred to the diversity of its workforce and the G was simple compliance measures. Today it has a much broader impact – Enterprise Spending for Good.

The E refers not only to the environmental impact of the company itself but also that of its value chain – a complex, sophisticated network which digital technology simplifies and brings visibility to. The S communicates how a company is helping foster social inclusion and helping create more inclusive economies in the 100 plus countries in which most global enterprises operate today.

And the G refers to the ecosystem a company creates for its business globally. This ecosystem must be transparent, fair, inclusive for smaller and diverse companies, and judged solely on the merits of price, quality, proven performance, and passion.

SEIZING THE MOMENT
ESG has overtaken geopolitical risk and uncertainty as the most pressing consideration for global business over the next two years, according to new research from Oxford University and Globespan Insights, offering procurement an unprecedented opportunity to demonstrate the value it brings to an organization.

Previously many CPOs believed they lacked the ability to be game-changers, but procurement leaders now have the tools to become the key drivers of overall company performance. The result of this is that CPOs are not only going to have that seat at the table but their teams will become a very exciting place for employees to work because it's within procurement that they can actually help create a better world with greater environmental sustainability, more inclusive economies, increased transparency, and better corporate governance.

Procurement can lead a company’s performance on each of these key deliverables, but its leaders must act now and adopt the digital technologies required to enable this transformation before the moment passes.”

Globality Enables Santander to Digitize Indirect Sourcing and Accelerate the Group's ESG Strategy

Ana Botin, Executive Chairman of the Santander Group, and Globality CEO Joel Hyatt explain how Globality empowers the financial group’s ESG strategy and commitment to responsible sourcing across all the countries in which it operates. Originally posted by Aquanima, here.

In its commitments to innovation and corporate responsibility, Aquanima, the global procurement arm of the Santander Group, is using its procurement expertise and Globality's AI-powered B2B services marketplace to significantly improve customer and supplier processes to build a better world for all.

With Globality, procurement teams have a unique opportunity to help create a better world by advancing ESG, the environmental, social, and governance strategy that is of increasing importance in all companies today. Procurement in the future will be much more strategic and valuable as we shift to “impact spending."

Impact spending will influence suppliers to operate more sustainably – in great part by using technology to select suppliers with best practices in sustainable performance. This enables global corporations to help create more inclusive economies by spending more money locally in the countries in which they operate, and by sourcing from outstanding smaller and diverse firms. And impact spending will assure transparency and compliance, both of which are far easier to achieve in an AI-powered digital universe than in the old analog world.

Through our partnership, Globality and Aquanima are providing the leadership in making procurement be about impact spending, creating value for Santander throughout the procurement process, and at the same time building a sustainable and inclusive global economy.

“BT is changing and so is procurement. Digitization is the driving force for long-term growth and value to the BT customer and operating model,” said Cyril Pourrat, Chief Procurement Officer, BT. “Partnering with Globality will help us to embrace digital technology and simplify our processes.”

“Having immediate access to our current suppliers and Globality’s diverse global network, will bring agility and new value to our teams,” added Pourrat.

BT now uses Globality's AI advisor, Glo™, to quickly and easily source the best suppliers for consulting, marketing, IT, HR, legal and other service categories.

“BT is revolutionizing the way it sources services in order to deliver exponential value to its stakeholders, while at the same time, helping to create a more inclusive and sustainable global marketplace,” said Joel Hyatt, Co-founder, Chairman, and CEO of Globality

“I’m very proud to be partnering with Cyril and his team, in unleashing the power of procurement to add value throughout BT — increasing efficiency, lowering costs, improving quality and advancing BT’s important ESG strategy,” added Hyatt.
