International Purchasing and Supply
Education and Research Association
The IPSERA Digitalisation Workshop aims to bring together scholars and practitioners involved in Purchasing and Supply Management (PSM) to discuss the topic of digitalisation of purchasing activities.
Digital transformations are on the strategic agenda of most companies. Some PSM organisation have benefited from being new technology adopters. Some claim increased efficiencies and enhanced strategic contributions. Harnessing Big Data, Business Intelligence, Artificial intelligence and other software and hardware technologies have helped them to reach new levels of performance. However, not all adopters are harvesting the expected benefits and there are many uncertainties and challenges.
This PDW is the result of a joint collaboration between three IPSERA SIGs: Supply chain finance, Purchasing and Innovation and Internet of Things.
The objectives of the PDW are to:
14:15h Practitioner Keynote presentation: "Automation vs. Augmentation"
14:45h Academi Keynote presentation by Prof. Michael Henke
15:30h Group sessions
16:45h Paper discussions
