We are proud to unveil another fantastic issue of CPOstrategy and wish warm greetings to all of our readers!

This month we are delighted to see Angela Qu, Senior Vice President, Chief Procurement Officer at Lufthansa Group grace the front cover of CPOstrategy. In this exclusive feature, Angela tells us how procurement is becoming a true business enabler.

With a focus on strategic enablement, Qu has been able to see significant improvements across the Group’s procurement performance and believes empowerment is key to delivering on any strategic vision. “We empower our group category managers by letting them understand what they’re responsible for and what their mandates are. Empowerment means that they are truly aligned to the procurement vision and understand how they can play a key role in the transformation. In the end, the team has to deliver the requested results.”

Elsewhere, we continue to explore the impacts of empowering procurement as Ben Van Zyl, Group Executive Procurement and Contract Management, at Telkom, discusses the procurement journey for business and how the internal stakeholder sits at the very heart of it.

“When you listen to business owners, you are able to translate their vision and strategy for their business into a sourcing strategy that will enable them to succeed,” he says. “It’s about getting the language right.”

Rounding out the magazine; Rich Ham, CEO of Fine Tune, tells us how the time is now for you to teach your team how to engage third parties to optimally advance the business’ interests, and award-winning CIO Phil Clayson provides the CIO’s perspective on on navigating the challenges of a pandemic by bringing IT and procurement closer together.
