Workshop 1: Defining SEI & the case for a new procurement model
Introduction: John Paterson, Chairman, SEIC Steering Committee
Procurement faces an immediate battle to convince business stakeholders that it has a significant role to play in the world of innovation. Rather than provide commercial and procurement support during an innovation-project phase, we should be involved much earlier – enabling long-term, strategic supplier relationships, scouting new suppliers and working closely with the business on long-term product and service strategies.
Following a brief introduction from our designated speaker to set the scene, participants will take part in an intensive workshop-style discussion into what we mean by SEI and how we can begin to get it established in our organisations.
11:30 – 11:45
Insights from the State of Flux SRM study
SRM leaders get more value from their strategic relationships. For example, State of Flux research consistently shows that they are four times more likely to gain access to customer of choice benefits such as Supplier-Enabled Innovation and twice as likely to gain access to the A-team.
Mel Shutes, head of SRM will share the building blocks and key activities that need to be in place to enable supplier collaboration and ultimately supplier innovation..
Mel Shutes, Executive Consultant and Head of SRM, State of Flux
11:45 – 12:00
SEI Research Insights
During the second quarter of 2016, the Supplier-Enabled Innovation Center conducted in-depth research into the approaches taken by companies to unlock innovation. During this session, we will explore some of the findings from the study, including an exploration of the SEI methodology itself, and why some of the individual elements are so important to success.
David Rae, Head of SEIC
13:00 – 13:40 Open Innovation: Bringing the outside in
Lucia Chierchia leads the open innovation effort from within the R&D function at Electrolux, and works hand in hand with the procurement function to bring capability into the function.
In this session, she will explain the Electrolux approach to open innovation and describe, using specific examples, how the collaboration between R&D and procurement has led to significant competitive advantage.
Lucia Chierchia, Open Innovation Director, Electrolux
13:40 – 14:40
Workshop 2: Choosing partners & measuring success
Introduction: Chris Holmes, Global Head Procurement Strategy & Transformation, Novartis
Both SRM and SEI demand advanced segmentation approaches to ensure the right resources and efforts are being put into the right relationships. Casting the net too wide and trying to achieve success with too many partners is a recipe for failure.
At the same time, measuring the success of those relationships, and wider programmes, is the Holy Grail of SEI.
Following a brief introduction from our designated speaker to set the scene, participants will take part in an intensive workshop-style discussion to explore SEI and supplier relationships and the metrics we use to drive them.
15:00 – 16:00
Workshop 3: The skills & capabilities of an SEI professional
Introduction: Sandro Scharlibbe, CPO, Brose
Extracting innovation from the supply base and other third parties, working collaboratively with internal stakeholders and pursuing long-term, strategic business goals sounds straight forward and logical. But the skills and capabilities required to succeed in SEI are very different to that of traditional procurement.
Following a brief introduction from our designated speaker to set the scene, participants will take part in an intensive workshop-style discussion into the skills and capabilities of an SEI professional.
16:00 – 16:30
Question Time & Close
During the final session of the day, attendees will be able to ask any final questions or air any final thoughts of our speakers.
John Paterson, Chairman, SEIC Steering Committee
