Re-calibrate your strategy

A successful strategy is revised and adjusted regularly based on monitoring progress against milestones and adjusting to changing conditions. While we all endeavour to review our strategies regularly, the reality often is, we don’t dedicate enough time to do so.

The Strategy Deep Dives have been designed to give you the opportunity to dedicate a day to take a step back, assess and evaluate the state of your business and industry, and re‑align your function’s strategic goals, priorities and action plans to manage risk and improve business alignment.

A micro perspective to the macro Congress themes

The Strategy Deep Dives are the perfect supplement to your attendance at the World Procurement Congress. The focus day allows you to breakdown some of the big-picture Congress themes to examine the tactical details to make the vision a reality. The Deep Dive agendas topics go far beyond the top-level that is explored during the Congress, to include multiple sub-themes of Risk Management or Business Alignment.

If your function is placing a priority on improving your risk mitigation approach or strengthening your business partnerships – this extra day is a MUST ATTEND.

A valuable addition to your Congress attendance

Here’s three reasons why you should attend a Strategy Deep Dive:



CONNECT with peers who have a similar strategic focus to learn from each other’s successes and side-step potential pitfalls


BENCHMARK your strategic plans to measure progress and find ways to improve to your action plan for advancement


SOLVE for common short-term challenges so you have time and resource to progress on your mid to long term strategic roadmap
