HARNESSING THE FULL POTENTIAL OF DIGITALLY TRANSFORMING PROCUREMENT
WAS HELD ON: March 31, 2021 3:00 pm CET
WAS HELD ON: March 31, 2021 3:00 pm CET
Case studies and key takeaways from business practice (joint webinar with Siemens) In this webinar, Jonas Hohlweck from Siemens Advanta Consulting and Christian Paul, principal at TWS, are sharing their learnings from helping procurement organisations to digitally transform. Way too often digital products are not developed based on where an organisation wants to be in the future. Rather, one ends up in copy-pasting a decently working Excel into a fancy looking and quicker, yet poorer working version of it. Jonas and Christian share their ideas how to avoid ending up in a situation like this and show examples where the better was as important as the quicker. They also identify what softer factors are required to land such a digital product into an organisation.

WAR GAMING – SHAPING AND TESTING STRATEGIC DECISIONS IN COMPLEX ENVIRONMENTS
WAS HELD ON: March 11, 2021 3:00 pm CET
WAS HELD ON: March 11, 2021 3:00 pm CET
Most organisations have to navigate in environments that are difficult to predict. Market disruptions, unpredictable negotiation counterparts, or unexpected regulations are just a few of the challenges that complicate decision making or the development of successful mid- and long-term strategies. War gaming is a method to shape and stress-test business strategies that can accomodate the most complex of environments. At the same time, it is a method that any company can execute: computational power is not necessary, only willingness to explore new ideas and the wits to execute them. In our webinar, we introduce war gaming, its applications and benefits. Moreover, we bring the method to life by walking through a practical business case study, in which a company successfully used war gaming to react to the introduction of a new product on their market. We invite you to learn when and how to use war gaming in an effective way and to add this method to your decision-making toolkit.

HOW TO ELEVATE SMALL CAP’S PROCUREMENT TO CHAMPIONS LEAGUE LEVEL
WAS HELD ON: February 25, 2021 3:00 pm CET
WAS HELD ON: February 25, 2021 3:00 pm CET
Insights into the strategic Procurement approach of market leaders and international corporations   These days, almost every organisation is exposed to dramatic changes in its supply and end-customer markets, driven by innovation, digitalisation and disruption. Everything that a business needs to transform itself for the future is likely to come from the outside: innovations from suppliers and the supply chain, digital solutions, IP rights or even partners for the transformation journey. Hence, the Strategic Procurement function plays a crucial role and is pivotal for the company's future success. Larger corporations are often much better positioned to cope with these challenges as they already have a mature Strategic Procurement function. For smaller companies, this may not be the case. In our webinar, we will provide insights into award-winning solutions for strategic decision-making in Procurement that deliver top results even for market-leading and large international corporations. We invite you to learn how to adopt a highly strategic and value-driving Procurement approach, and how this contributes to the success of your entire organisation.

THE TOP 3 NEGOTIATION MISTAKES AND HOW TO ADDRESS THEM
WAS HELD ON: January 28, 2021 3:00 pm CET
WAS HELD ON: January 28, 2021 3:00 pm CET
Can you tell me why I'm not achieving outstanding negotiation results on a regular basis even though I'm following most of the steps you're teaching me? Is there anything I'm missing? Doing only what is right does not always guarantee the desired results. It's equally important to not do what is wrong. You can score as many goals as you want but if you concede more than you score then obviously you will lose the game. In our webinar, we will focus on the three main negotiation mistakes most people make, and show you how to avoid these mistakes and the best way to fix them. You will get a crash course in becoming a better negotiator by understanding why most people are leaving money on the table and how you can do much better in your next negotiation.

WHY THERE IS NO BLUEPRINT FOR A RESILIENT SUPPLY CHAIN
WAS HELD ON: December 8, 2020 3:00 pm CET
WAS HELD ON: December 8, 2020 3:00 pm CET
Trade wars, Brexit and unexpected events like Covid-19 draw companies’ attention to the resilience of their supply chains. A supply network might have evolved over time with new elements added or changes made without too much thought about how they would affect a company’s risk exposure. We will explain why there is no simple solution to the problem. It is a complex optimisation issue as all measures like dual-sourcing, warehousing or outsourcing have both benefits and risks, not to mention the need to ensure social and environmental standards. We will share our thoughts and some good practices and will show how to systematically address the problem.
