GEP Procurement Team Award

Winner: The Kraft Heinz Company

Entry Overview

Talent and agile resourcing are two hot topics in the world of procurement. The Global Procurement Agile and Strategic Projects (A&SP) team at Kraft Heinz has successfully delivered in both these areas, acting as a reliable talent pipeline for diverse, high-potential, future leaders and successfully leveraging an agile model to accelerate and enhance the delivery of key projects.

Since 2022, the team has delivered 72 project work streams resulting in enhanced strategies, clear business cases, transformational initiatives and several hundred million in identified opportunities for the company.

The team’s recruitment strategy through a creative MBA case competition is now recognised as a targeted career path for strong performers in top MBA programmes globally, and team alumni have successfully proven the value of diversity in procurement. Talent in the team is frequently referenced by leaders both in and outside the function as future leaders for the company, and those that have been promoted are doing just that: leading teams and key initiatives at the global and local level.

The A&SP team has successfully paired agile deployment to accelerate results with a unique talent incubator that is being recognised internally and by industry peers as a success story.
