Event description

Description

Join us at the next IACCM Professional Development and Networking Meeting in Melbourne.

Venue: 155 Bertie Street, Port Melbourne - On Street Parking available

10 Mins / 4klm from Southern Cross Station.

Our focus for this Member Meeting will follow the IACCM theme for 2018: Collaborating Across Boundaries

Trading relationships often involve multiple parties whose support and alignment is critical to success. Achieving that support and alignment depends on empathy - an understanding and appreciation of their point of view (whether or not we agree with it).

And in the rapidly changing world of digitization, automation, and diversity, relationships are being forced into new approaches to collaborating across boundaries.

For several years, IACCM research has pointed to the scale of value erosion that comes from weaknesses in the way we form and manage contracts. While a few organizations have picked up on this and driven significant improvements, most have not.

Suddenly, the reticence is disappearing; there is a real belief that a focus on 'relationship resource planning' can yield the next big wave of savings - and that the IACCM community, with its 'collaboration across boundaries', will be at the heart of the movement that drives these benefits.

At this event we will explore the way commercial teams are collaborating, and we want you to bring your stories, examples, insights and question to share with others.

Our guest speaker for this meeting is Robert Pease. Robert is a procurement and supply chain thought leader who is passionate about helping organisations to gain more value from their network of supplier, customer and partner relationships. Robert has undertaken a Masters degree in Organisational Dynamics and for this meeting we have asked him to share some of the insights he has gained from his study of Organisational and Inter-group Dynamics with a focus on the dynamics of trust and the factors that support and inhibit the development of trust in buyer-supplier relationships. As Robert often says: “Without trust, you won’t share, if you don’t share you can’t collaborate, if you don’t collaborate you can’t innovate”.

Following the official agenda, we invite you to participate in networking with Robert, Board Members, and each other.
