Angela Dum appointeD as Associate Director to lead procurement innovation
FRANKFURT, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#associatedirector–Global Management Consultancy Arthur D. Little (ADL) has appointed Angela Dum as Associate Director to globally lead Procurement Innovation at ADL, focusing on industrial goods. Angela will support clients in taking procurement to the next level with new, innovative approaches, and in unlocking maximum procurement value across the company and extended ecosystem. She will be a member of the Global Operations & Transformation Practice senior team and based in Munich.
A recognized procurement expert and thought leader, Angela joins ADL with 20 years of strategic consulting experience. She has a track record of holistically transforming procurement and realizing sustainable results in collaboration with her clients. She is a native Austrian, and has worked for clients in all major regions of the world. She holds a Master’s in Social and Economic Sciences from Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, as well as a Master’s in European Management from Bocconi University Milan.
Angela comments, “The time for procurement is now – more than ever. Procurement’s role and contribution have never been more critical, and will continue to be a major competitive differentiator going forward. We have always operated in times of change, but now is the time of disruption. Procurement has to find resilient and evolving new answers to ever-increasing cost pressure, persistent global supply challenges, and pressing sustainability requirements, while reinventing itself to cater to new business models and contribute to overall company performance as a source of innovation and growth.
“For example, excellence in supplier and risk management has been a must-have; cultivating new strategic partnerships and supplier ecosystems and driving co-innovation are ways of finding fast and creative responses in new realities. The “Ambidextrous CPO” is required to manage the old and the new – the established and the disruptive – simultaneously, and foster an organizational DNA that allows for both. I am excited to work with our clients to fully unlock the potential of ‘Ambidextrous Procurement’.”

Little’s Operations Strategy & Transformation Practice, adds, “We are very pleased to have Angela joining our growing global Operations Strategy & Transformation team.
