Procurement plays a pivotal role in the delivery and execution of the Olympic Games. However, it was not always like that. The organizing committee of the 2012 London Olympic games took the decision to invest in strategic procurement like never before. The result: the success of team created a legacy whereby the IOC has recognized that procurement must play a pivotal role in the delivery of all subsequent Games.
I am joined today by Gerry Walsh, the CPO of the London 2012 games. We discuss his and his team's Olympic journey, including the key challenges his team faced, how they overcame them, and the extraordinary lengths that they went to, to ensure that the Organizing Committee fulfilled their CSR commitments.
