Why an annual barometer of the success of Digitalization of Procurement Departments?

Procurement departments have been engaged in their digital transformation for several years now. In parallel with the growing maturity of organizations on this subject, other issues have developed, such as the impact of data governance, CSR or even an ever more in-depth tooling of processes. Procurement Departments, which are at the crossroads of internal and external relations within companies, are therefore at the heart of these transformation challenges.

1st AI platform for Digital Change Management, InsideBoard supports the success of these transformations. Solicited by Procurement Departments, we wanted to better understand their practices and their ambitions. And this is why we decided to gather a Scientific Committee of decision-makers and experts, to create the 1st Digital Transformation Success Barometer for Procurement Departments.

Our Scientific Committee

Co-constructed with a Scientific Committee made up of procurement, process and data professionals, this barometer is a unique benchmarking tool on the state of the art of successful digital transformation in procurement departments.

The experts' word

    Procurement departments, which are at the crossroads of internal and external relations within companies, are today at the heart of the challenges of the digital transformation of organizations.

    By approaching change management as a training plan for the chosen software, the project programs its own failure.

  • Louis de Lamaestre

    For a successful adoption and to ensure symmetry of attention, let's always consider our operational staff as customers who must be focused on their tasks and their jobs.

  • Joël Aznar

    It is important to be aware of the hidden cost of not managing the change of supplier information: $1 proactively, $10 at the time of use and $100 afterwards.
