Procurement Group X Innovation Exchange: ‘The Art of the Possible’

13 May @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm BST

Constructing Excellence

Ever considered the incredible potential of procurement to fuel innovation in your projects, programs, or even across your entire organisation?

Procurement is frequently underestimated as a powerhouse capable of driving superior results, and indeed, as a catalyst for innovation.

Get ready to dive into a dynamic discussion as the CE Procurement group teams up with the Innovation Exchange to explore ‘The Art of the Possible’. Together, we’ll unravel the ways in which procurement can ignite innovation and unlock limitless possibilities.

The Procurement group chair, Rebecca Rees, will give us an overview of the recently published Art of the Possible report from the Innovation Procurement Empowerment Centre and how the construction industry can harness the power of the procurement act 2023 to define creative & Innovative strategies.

We’ll also be joined by Jeremy and Ross of 4C Consultancy who will give us some case studies of how procurement has enabled innovation to thrive across a range of other industries.
