Glocalised Procurement – Think Global, Act Local

Glocalisation” is a remedy for procurement myopia, according to Dr Jones Mathew, a professor at the Great Lakes Institute of Management in Gurgaon, India. He was one of the 100 African and international experts who shared their experience and insights with the more than 500 delegates who attended the recent Smart Procurement World Indaba. Now in its 16th year, this event is South Africa’s largest, longest-standing conference and expo for procurement and inbound supply chain professionals. This year’s theme was “Glocalised Procurement – Think Global, Act Local”.

The Indaba offered the inbound supply chain and procurement profession a critical opportunity to meet in person to learn and network for the first time since the start of the pandemic.
