Are our procurement leaders pointing us in the right direction?

GregSolomon.jpgProcurement and Supply Chain recognise the important role leadership plays in the public and business sectors meeting their strategic objectives. According to Greg Solomon, Managing Director, McDonalds SA, “leadership is not just about organising a group of people to achieve a common objective - it is about creating a culture of accountability and performance. Great leadership creates a magnet for high-performers and fosters a high-performance organisation. That is why strong competitor organisations have strong histories of leadership.”


Next week there will be a Procurement and Supply Chain Indaba in Midrand hosting industry, Procurement and Supply Chain leaders who have been challenged to “Think Differently” about how they conduct business and to then share this with you.


Effective leadership in challenging times is what South Africa’s economy needs at this current moment, so join Brand Pretorius, Director of Companies and former Chief Executive Officer, McCarthy Motor Holdings as he addresses the importance of integrity, transparency and consistency in the procurement context.


Addressing weaknesses in the current procurement system with the aim of modernising procurement architecture, improving transparency, strengthening accountability, simplifying processes, increasing value for money, and supporting the development of SCM capacity and capability are key focus areas for you in your current function and your leaders who are making key strategic decisions - We’ll be addressing all of this and more at Smart Procurement World 2013.


The event will run from 10-12 September where 100+ key influencers will gather, over 30+ suppliers will showcase their products and 300+ verified SMMEs will showcase their offering and allow you the opportunity to grow these businesses.
