The ProActive Think Tank is focussed on applying the concepts of proactive/preventive law to business and academic areas. The group's organisers include IACCM, the Nordic School of Proactive Law, the National Center for Preventive Law, TUAS, and the Corporate Contracting Capabilities Project Consortium.

Our aim is to find a way of taking all the ideas around these concepts and developing them further so that they can be used more widely in business, management and legal activities as well as in research, learning, development and training.

End of Life hardware costs

Recently, when reviewing the costs built up in a Service & Support contract noticed we had accounted for an "excessive" amount of hardware upgrades.

The end of Procurement

Hello Tim I found your article very interesting. I agree that procurement struggled for years to prove its real value, and it is still struggling. Firstly. Until the procurement staff performance is measured on monetary savings mainly and their work considered purely administration, it will be difficult to make any changes. The demand need to come from senior commercial leaders. The targets set for procurement staff are quick turnaround time and monetary savings. There is very little time to build relationship! Question. If the new technologies will make procurement quicker, with less or without people, would the relationship element be pushed back even more? No need to lift the phone anymore or meet in person! While I can hear that you would have more time to interact with suppliers. That is not, what I can see, but increasing volume of work, as you can do procurement quicker. In my view, the senior commercial leaders need to understand the benefit of relationships in business, set the direction and support the staff to achieve it. Support means not only sending a person on course but show it how it is done. Really seen nowadays! Secondly. I am always interested in self-development. What do you think what skills should we should concentrate on?
