Procurement analytics is a vast subject that could be explored in many different ways. As this round-table is principally about learning from each other, we have developed a framework of questions that will act as a guide to this exploration. A number of sub-themes/topics/questions will arise out of your discussions, which should be captured in the minutes and added as agenda items for future sessions.
Q1. What are the different purposes for using analytics?
Q2. What are we analysing and what are we trying to achieve?
Q3. Where do we source the data?
Q4. What comes first the data or the problem?
The following questions are probably more generic (as opposed to being applied to specific purposes).
Q5. What tools are available to help us?
Q6. How do we present the data for maximum impact?
Your Expert Facilitator
The session will be facilitated by Simon Thompson, Director, Asia Pacific at Acquire Procurement Services. As Simon states on his Linkedin profile, challenging the status quo is what he does. His specialty is providing alternatives, some of which come from completely different industries, and often involve adopting techniques that challenge currently accepted business philosophies. He loves the quote “The future is here, it is just not evenly distributed.”, which he understands as “the answer to your problem already exists, but perhaps not in the place where you expect to find it.!” It’s all about being inquisitive and having the courage to explore other options. You can watch Simon describe his philosophy (Supply by Design) or see more about Simon by clicking on the following links:
