The productivity plateau

The productivity plateau: Tending to overestimate the effect of technology in the short run and underestimating in the long run. 

The productivity plateau: Tending to overestimate the effect of technology in the short run and underestimating in the long run. 

Has technology been a help or a hindrance? And will it ultimately be the main driver of transformation to get us past this point and on the road to greater productivity, efficiency and effectiveness?

Procurement's traditional reliance on tedious, labour-intensive processes can serve as the perfect place for demonstrating the transformational potential of newer technologies. When you do away with disparate systems and disjointed solutions that impede and frustrate users and stakeholders; when information can flow freely and data becomes visible; when processes and work flows become easy to understand and satisfying to use — then everyone, within procurement and outside it as well, becomes more productive and more effective.

This Supply Management Insider webinar, in partnership with GEP, will:

  • Delve into the timeline of procurement technology and the reasons behind current impediments to productivity
  • Explore the relationships among data and information, process and work flows, and productivity and effectiveness
  • Learn why state-of-the-art procurement software is making UX such a high priority
  • Hear reports from the field about real-world impacts of new technologies and digitally transformed procurement organisations
