Key Note: The Ericsson centralizing cost and process management transformation journey

Ericsson is going through a major transformation journey where staying local and close to the customer is vital but cost and process management are being centralized. The Ericsson transformation journey is quite unique with big spend volumes, 2 million external PO’s and 3,5 million invoices per year. With 28 000 suppliers and 142 categories. In this session you will hear how Ericsson are choosing to use industry best practice set up from different spend areas creating a unique Ericsson gearbox.

- How do you stay local and close to the customer and at the same time enable cost and process


- What are the lessons learned from studying industry best practice?

- Who is doing what during the transformation journey?

- How are Ericsson making sure set strategies are realized?

EBG | Network startades 2010 av Anna Bjärkerud med ambitionen att samla och dela erfarenheter kring elektronisk affärsprocessutveckling bland Nordiska företag och organisationer. Fokusområden är köparens önskan att styra och kontrollera flödet från behov eller inköp till betalning, leverantörens från order till betalning. Eftersom denna process i stora bolag är extremt funktionsindelad anser EBG att det behövs funktionsövergripande forum som hjälper bolag att effektivisera och automatisera för att realisera förbättrade resultat, ökad spårbarhet och nöjdare kunder och leverantörer. EBG driver idag även den årliga konferensen Source 2 Pay Summit

As one of few networks, EBG aims at creating opportunities to learn from your peers across functions and across industry borders. We talk about the networked economy and what impact current and future private and public sector development bring to the table for any CFO, CPO, CIO, SSC manager or any other person with the mandate to bring change to their organisation.

We host a couple of blogs:

And run a couple of yearly networking days:

We do interviews, write articles, make surveys, run webinars and much more - because we believe that all business and organisational development comes from changing peoples behaviour, looking at business processes in a more holistic way and sharing experiences across industry borders.
