This case study is about how to empower procurement during a time of change. Stephen Cobham, Chief Procurement Officer, Sanofi, the French pharmaceutical company that has revenues in excess of €36bn and over 100,000 employees, will talk members through how he repositioned the procurement function within Sanofi to have greater internal influence and strategic impact. He will include in these, key areas such as strategic alignment, regulatory environment, team diversity, technology deployment, and sustainability. Sanofi is a large complex organisation and its repositioning had to take place during a time when Sanofi was also implementing a strategic shift, repositioning itself, its product portfolio, its geographical footprint, its key investment areas, and competing for scarce supplies.
