Are you about to build a new procurement organization? About to re-structure an existing organization? Considering what you should focus on, in what order you should develop competences and where to start? EBG | Network welcome Benny Hall, Head of Purchasing MTR Tech and Purchasing lead at MTR Nordic to Sourcing Outlook 2020. He will discuss just that.
MTR Nordic are structuring their sourcing and procurement organization. As EBG have discussed what to focus on in October, the conclusion came to two aspects: People & Organization and System. During the many, many summits and on-site and online gatherings EBG have enabled – these two aspects always stand out to be challenging. Welcome to join a discussion focusing on Your experiences and group experiences paired with Bennys experiences.
On-site or online in October
For months we have lived in a world where we both have come closer as human beings and further apart as humans. In October you will have the possibility to join on-site in Stockholm or online. EBG never do fairs or mass crowd gatherings. If possible we will gather a select group of people in October on-site – and the rest online. In either case round table discussions and experiences will be shared as intended. This year it is HOW we meet that will differ, not that or if. You register to attend as usual and do not have to decide now how you want to join.
Below you can view the topic that Benny will discuss!
