LECTURES | ROUNDTABLES | CASE STUDIES | NETWORKING

22-23 OCTOBER 2018

Warsaw, Marriott Hotel

It’s the 5th, jubilee edition of the largest procurement conference in Poland

Last year, we discussed Procurement 4.0. In 2018, our main focus is: Procure value – not costs. Much has been said about how the role of the Procurement Departments is not limited just to cost-cutting, but it involves creation of value. The goal of the conference is to show the ways of building said value.

PROCON/POLZAK is:

  • Improved agenda – lectures of the previous years’ best speakers
  • Best procurement practices – effective tools and innovative approach
  • Networking – almost 500 procurement executives and specialist
  • Valuable benchmarking – compare the procurement strategies
  • Roundtables – an innovative discussion form with practitioners and experts

SPECIAL GUESTS

Peter Kraljič

the godfather of procurement

Is it really necessary to introduce our special guest?
Born in 1939, Peter Kraljič, graduated from metallurgy university in Slovenia and then received his Ph.D. at the University of Technology in Hannover and at INSEAD Business School, France.
He held managerial positions at McKinsey&Company until retirement.
In 1983, his publication Purchasing Must Become Supply Management, explaining his method of purchasing analysis of the organization’s portfolio, later called the Kraljič matrix, gained wide publicity in the business world.
Over 2,500 citations in prestigious magazines and business publications as well as the unrelenting popularity of his method – after almost 35 years of existence – is the best proof of its importance for the entire procurement practitioners.
The 5th jubilee of the PROCON / POLZAK 2018 conference is the exquisite opportunity to participate in an exclusive lecture of the living legend of the procurement world:
“GLOBALISATION, COMPETITIVENESS AND SUPPLY MANAGEMENT” – 23 Oct
