A Guide to Procurement 4.0
The Digital Future of Procurement
The course is set for 2016. Many companies are facing major operational and strategic challenges. Driven by the increasing digitization of all business and process levels, the fast-growing expectations of employees, the development of infrastructures on supplier side and, not least, the increasing reorientation of procurement towards more management, strategic consulting and services, many companies are facing a paradigm shift. The German monthly “Beschaffung aktuell” and wescale have initiated the annual rubric “Wegweiser 4.0” to provide impulses and a basis for discussion for 2016. Each issue examines specific aspects of the strategic and operational requirements in purchasing with the added input of best-practice examples, interviews and expert statements.
