  • 9. Sector Players

  • 12. Supply Chain Management and Improvement
    • Aspiration to tackle whole chain has failed
    • Productivity and procurement intelligence are still vital
    • Small segment improvement is hard to measure – and sell
    • Concentration on purchasing decisions may be misleading
  • 13. Supply Chain Players
    • Credit Rating – major efforts from D&B, Experian and Equifax
    • Bids and tenders management raises critical issues McGraw Hill Construction bids management integrates standards, specs, and contract/bid management for top 25 sector players
    • Use a universal sector baseline – GlobalSpec and engineering design
    • Watch social media, procurement recommendations/directories – BrownBook, Qype
  • 14. Two prerequisites for change…
    • You must give up a product mindset and take on a services and solutions view of your content
    • … and you have to be confident that you know what your customers do for a living – on the network, but also in real life – to be able to envisage helping them in this way
  • 15. Remember…
    • It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change
    • Charles Darwin
  • 16. Thanks for listening!
