Companies are acting in an increasingly VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous).

More and more is being expected of the Chief Procurement Officer (CPO). Therefore, the CPO needs to look at both:

  • A longer-term plan to achieve excellence in procurement
  • A shorter-term plan to look at the imminent/current challenges and levers

To support CPOs in both dimensions, VSC launch the "CPO Agenda 2015 Conference", sharing and discussing:

  • Excellence in procurement
  • Main trends regarding strategy, organization, capabilities, etc.
  • Hot CPO topics for 2015
  • Industry trends impacting procurement, main challenges and levers for procurement





Building a Sustainable Supply Chain - CPO's new Priority.

The presentation is on the recent new expectations from a CPO to focus on cost savings, supply risks and also to develop a sustainable supply chain. What is Green Supply Chain and why is this important to today's CPOs and their organisations.

Unpredictability and surges in supply chain challenges for today's CPOs
Supply chain disruptions are a common occurrence that companies face on a daily basis. Significant disruptions may not be as frequent, but can have dramatic financial consequences for a corporate. The presentation is on the Sharing of key learnings from a recent Supply Chain  Resiliency Study results and how companies can learn from these and best incorporate these into their supply chain strategies.


Benchmarking your current performance

During the 2015 CPO Conference we will undertake a procurement maturity assessment for you to benchmark your current organisation. PwC has a maturity tool for assessing procurement organisations, with 11 factors and 142 questions. It assess all elements of procurement in an organisation and gives a score from Level 1 (Entry Level Procurement) to Level 5 (Best Practice Procurement).  During this session we will take 10 questions from the maturity assessment and each participant can score their organisation based on the current state. The factors will cover "Procurement Structure, Supplier Management, Procurement Perception, Procurement Influence, Contract Management, Technology, Spend Data" and will give you a very high-level overview of your current procurement organisation and it's strengths, weaknesses and areas to improve.The results will be anonymous and only you will know what the score for your organisation is but we will collate the results to get a benchmark of the current standard of procurement organisations in Vietnam.


Supplier Lifecycle Risk Management

Quality issues. Illegal business practices. Supplier bankruptcy. Capacity shortages. Have any of these issues had an impact on your company’s ability to deliver products and services to market in the past 12 – 18 months? Unless you are very lucky, you’ve been dealing with any number of these challenges in relation to your suppliers. The risks associated with supplier failure is  too great to ignore. Supply chains are too lean, demand is too unpredictable and competition is too fierce. These realities are the force behind a new discipline, Supplier Lifecycle Risk Management, where the supplier relationship evolves over time and risk is proactively managed each step of the way.
More topics will be updated shortly
