VDA - Leveraging collective intelligence for Procurement

At Tolson we are working in a revolutionary way of consulting: Progress Together! Knowledge is directly shared between peers without the filter of a solution provider or a consultant.

  • VDA is a unique initiative that relies on the collective intelligence of more than 20 large companies.
  • The mission they have in common is boosting their indirect procurement categories thanks to best practice sharing and innovative digital solution discovery.
  • Within VDA, TOLSON is responsible for the overall structure and organization the project.
  • Each year, we organize around 50 workshops and events with more than 400 participants…where we learned how to turn peer to peer exchanges into a highly effective way of building a vision and a roadmap.

SUPPLIER INNOVATION

Supplier innovation is more than just an event, but a way of working! We strongly believe that the role of Purchasing in innovation is to bring together the Business and Suppliers in a structured way.

TOLSON assists you to develop and deploy an end-to-end innovation system that onboards the business, management, suppliers and buyers from the identification of innovation needs up to the follow-up of innovation projects.

SUSTAINABILITY

A company that does not take in to consideration Sustainability, has no future.

 

This is why TOLSON created The Sustainable Business Community (SBC), a community that gathers professionals working on Sustainability and CSR to progress together faster on common challenges.

SBC is more than a Club; our ambition is to address all your challenges in a very structured and organized manner through peer-to-peer discussions that produce concrete and actionable deliverables.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

I am quite impressed by the speed of deployment of companies. If you compare where we were at the beginning of the year and now I see that we have all made big steps of change, we have also identified the challenges for the years to come. Extremely well structured.

By participating, I was confirmed several times on some choicesand this made my vision evolve. What I consider great are these workshop moments where we take a step back, review our ideas & take time to ask ourselves new questions.
