Procurement is in the midst of a period of significant change - driven in large part by an exploding ecosystem of digital solutions. With these new options comes new expectations, specifically the need to provide a consumer-like buying experience for all categories. 

For instance, the way that procurement buys technology is changing - from a one-size-fits-all model, to one where care is taken to architect a tech stack that can meet the needs of the business. 

In this episode, host Philip Ideson welcomes two guests: Dr. Ferhat Eryurt, a Partner at ap-solut Group, and Lukas Wawrla, Co-founder and Managing Director at Archlet. They took the opportunity to discuss:

  • Where procurement is on the digitization journey today
  • How procurement should manage the many options presented by combining platforms and best-of-breed solutions
  • Whether procurement is giving enough weight to the stakeholder experience when building out a technology ecosystem

We are going to be discussing ‘experiential procurement’ in detail throughout 2022. In short, the experience procurement creates for all stakeholders - both while interacting with us and while navigating the buying process - is fundamental to determining the impact we can have and the role we can play in the businesses. 

In this week’s episode, host Philip Ideson is joined by Tim Jones, former Chief Procurement Officer for Google, now Vice President of Business Operations at Epic Games. They last spoke (via podcast anyway) seven years ago - an entire lifetime in the procurement maturity progression.

Tim and Phil take this opportunity to catch up and dig into the concept of ‘experiential procurement’ 

  • What procurement ends up getting tangled and tripped up by an overly internal focus, when the organization definitely needs us looking outward
  • How procurement technology has changed in the wake of the eCommerce boom, and how our processes need to hurry to keep up
  • Why procurement needs to be ‘on the lookout’ for evidence of buyer arrogance in the RFP process

Despite the fact that it isn't frequently discussed as a spend category, health insurance represents an ideal opportunity for procurement to create value for the business. It is a large category in terms of spend, involves a lot of nuances and complexity, and it has been the exclusive domain of Human Resources - until now.

 

​​This episode is based on a recent category briefing held within the AOP Mastermind community. Philip Ideson was joined by Eric Krieg, the Managing Director of Risk International Services, experts in helping organizations manage the health insurance spend category. He provided a category overview and then answered live questions. 

 

In the conversation, Eric shared how procurement can strategically manage the health insurance category, including: 

  • The nature of the health insurance market today 
  • Tips on how procurement can engage with stakeholders to manage this critical and sensitive category
  • The opportunities that exist for procurement to create lasting value once we are engaged
