Procurement 4.0

Procurement 4.0 provides insights and guidance on how to best face the current and upcoming challenges for procurement organizations. Although digitization might be considered a driving factor behind Procurement 4.0 it is far too shortsighted to limit Procurement 4.0 solely on apps and automation. To gain a clearer picture of future procurement, the authors conducted interviews with leading procurement heads of global corporates such as BMW, Lufthansa, Maersk, BP and Allianz. These industry examples combined with various other cases offer a practical view to shed light on this still rather theoretical construct. Four dimensions of a 4.0 Procurement framework are further explored to address and react to business needs of the future: Competing value chains, co-creation, leadership and digital transformation. Besides industry examples, each chapter contains 'survival tips' as impulses for procurement managers to lift their teams to the next level. Die Autorinnen und Autoren sind bei der Unternehmensberatung h&z tätig. h&z ist die konzeptionell führende Unternehmensberatung in Deutschland, wenn es um Einkauf und Thought Leadership im Bereich Einkauf 4.0 geht.

In such uncertain and fuzzy times, it can be helpful to stop for a moment and freeze the status quo. At this special moment in time, we from h&z decided to write a book on 'Procurement 4.0', addressing the huge challenges procurement will have to face. There will not be fewer tasks, but definitely different ones in terms of what we buy and how we buy. With this book, we dare to take a glimpse into the future while broadening the overall picture: 'Digital' is only a small aspect of Procurement 4.0, even more challenges lie, for example, in the organizations we need to design for tomorrow or the people we need to choose, leveraging the supply base while creating winning value chains. And, as one CPO put it recently: 'We want Procurement 4.0, but we have Staff 2.0 and even Leadership 1.0.' Fortunately, we didn't have to go all the way on our own. We'd like to thank the contributors from leading industrial corporations for sharing their opinions and insights in the form of interviews and use cases. Stefan Aichbauer Managing Partner at h&z A LETTER FROM PROCUREMENT LEADERS BY DAVID RAE Challenges ahead - an outlook by Procurement Leaders There has been a great deal of debate over recent years about how the ongoing march of technology might undermine our way of life; with robots stealing our jobs, computers driving our cars and artificial intelligence (AI) systems surpassing human intelligence on their way to taking over the world. While much of this debate is fueled by headline-loving journalists' and entrepreneurs' intent on creating a feeding frenzy around a particular trend or technology, the fact remains that we are living through an intense and unprecedented period of change. Not only is technology advancing at an astonishing rate, when coupled with other trends such as population growth, rapid urbanization, climate change and an intense and increasing energy dependency, we face some interesting challenges ahead. The advances made in technology, of course, are in many cases a commercial reac
