Productivity in Banking - Background and Objective

The Productivity in Banking Think Tank assembles a small group of invited senior business leaders from the Procurement discipline within the Financial Services industry dedicated to evolving the function and allowing it to contribute more effectively to the profitability and performance of their organizations.
This membership gathering builds on the work done by the focus group that supported “Beyond Procurement” research project in cooperation with the ISCM in 2011-12, and the recently completed “Productivity in Pharma” Think Tank. It is an exclusive forum for member organizations to create innovation solutions to common challenges in an environment of exchange between buying organizations, providers and academia.
The next event will kick-off in October 2013 with a series of three 1-day workshops and focus on this year’s lead question:
“What are the key challenges and opportunities in the banking industry, and how can they be addressed by better leveraging the unique capabilities within our supply base”
