Issue 20 of CPOstrategy is here!

We have a fantastic issue for you this month, as we take a closer look at how procurement can be a true competitive advantage…for the sporting industry!

Exploring this with us, is Nour-Eddine Boufertala, Head of Procurement at England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) the national governing body for all cricket in England and Wales. ECB is working to promote the game of cricket as widely as possible and as part of its Inspiring Generation Strategy for the national game, the ECB will look to put a bat and ball into more and more hands and introduce more people to the power of cricket over the next five years.  

And procurement is the key to doing exactly that.

“We want everyone to enjoy playing cricket and to enjoy the game. What we have is not a complicated network, but a lot of people are included in the process and the procurement plays a key part in all of this,” explains Boufertala.

Elsewhere, Ivan da Mata, CPO of Claro Brasil, is tasked with delivering a major procurement transformation journey for the telecommunications giant. Running alongside a significant digital transformation, his goal is to create a fast, business oriented and best in class procurement function.

“Quite simply,” starts da Mata. “Procurement was not keeping up with Claro’s businesses’ fast pace transformation and so we laid out a roadmap that would see us achieve Procurement 4.0 for Claro Brazil by 2021-2022 and beyond.”

We also look at supply chain resilience with Annie Li of Movado Group, Rod Robinson of COUPA talks about connecting minority owned enterprises with larger businesses through procurement and we detail five trends set to hit the healthcare industry in 2021.
