For one last time in 2020…


Hello and welcome to the final CPOstrategy Magazine of 2020 (issue 19 if you’re keeping count!) 

Cover star Alan Rankin, CPO of STADA, discusses how a procurement journey aims to truly cement STADA as a world-leading procurement organisation.

We explore what ‘world-class’ procurement organisation entails and how that enables a future of growth for STADA. “It’s a massive transformation in the sense that you’re building the plane, but you’re also flying the plane. So it’s a question of transform and perform,” he says.

Elsewhere, we have an exclusive feature on CSA Group. Four years into a massive procurement transformation journey, we catch up with Manny Satija, Senior Director, Integrated Supply Chain, and the man in charge of bringing this journey to life through experience and a transformational mindset.

We also speak with Paul Harridine VP of Procurement and Supply Management at CN, as he praises the resilience of his procurement team in delivering procurement efficiencies during what has been a most challenging year. 

Rounding out the magazine Dave Brittain of Amazon Business looks at how digital procurement can help manage organisational goals, we look at the five worst practices in procurement as compiled by the GEP and Greg Watts tells us why AI and procurement is a match made in heaven.
