2 January 2024


Hey there, let’s sip our cup of coffee, get comfortable, and kick off the first IPS Connect Coffee Chats of 2024 with enthusiasm and a shared commitment to making this year a remarkable one for procurement!

As we say goodbye to 2023 and embrace the new year, it’s an exciting time for all of us procurement professionals to take a moment and reflect on our past accomplishments while setting our sights on what lies ahead. The start of a new year brings with it a sense of renewal, opportunity, and fresh perspectives.

In the world of procurement, this is an exciting time to evaluate strategies, streamline processes, and enhance supplier relationships. It’s a time to celebrate successes, learn from challenges, and embrace innovation. As we step into 2024, let’s embark on a procurement journey that is defined by excellence, efficiency, and continuous improvement.

Reflecting on the past year, procurement teams can analyse key metrics, performance indicators, and supplier feedback to identify areas for growth and enhancement. By understanding the successes and opportunities for improvement, procurement professionals can develop targeted action plans that align with organizational objectives and drive value.

In the spirit of the new year, it’s also important to set resolutions that will shape the future of procurement. These resolutions can range from embracing digital transformation and leveraging emerging technologies to fostering sustainable and ethical sourcing practices. By setting ambitious yet achievable goals, procurement teams can elevate their impact and contribute to the overall success of their organizations.

As we embark on this new year, let’s also remember the importance of collaboration and communication. Building strong partnerships with suppliers, stakeholders, and internal teams is key to achieving procurement excellence. By fostering transparent and open lines of communication, procurement professionals can strengthen relationships, mitigate risks, and drive innovation.

We extend our warmest wishes for a successful and prosperous new year, filled with exciting opportunities, fruitful collaborations, and remarkable achievements. Let’s make this year a transformative one for procurement, where we redefine what is possible and continue to elevate the profession to new heights.
