From Tactics to Strategy: Building Resilient, Efficient and Sustainable Procurement 4.0

The procurement function has undergone significant transformation over the years from a tactical to a broader strategic role. As organisations are increasingly re-inventing themselves to navigate through the changing landscape with new agility, the expectations from procurement to evolve into an ‘enabling’ and ‘value creation’ function instead of its traditional role as a ‘compliance’ or ‘enforcement’ function is now stronger than ever.

This presents a unique opportunity for procurement leaders to increase their departments’ influence within the organization and expand their value offering beyond just cost savings to a holistic orientation of business-value. This calls for a radical rethinking on how people, process and technology can be transformed to build resilient, efficient and sustainable procurement 4.0.

Supported by the Bahrain Tender Board and held under the patronage of H.E. Shaikh Nayef bin Khalid Al Khalifa, Chairman of Bahrain Tender Board, the 5th edition of Procurement Middle East 2022 will be held on 15 - 16 November 2022 in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The event will also host the 4th edition of the Procurement Middle East Awards.

As the only government endorsed procurement event in the region, Procurement Middle East brings together the most influential leaders in the procurement and supply chain sector to discuss impending issues and solutions, and explore innovative avenues for the development of the procurement sector.
