I passionately believe in the value that procurement can deliver.
Unfortunately, our stakeholders and executives do not always agree. They may have had bad experiences in the past, or believe that they can buy better. As a result, we spend so much of our time as procurement professionals trying to convince others of our value.
Our greatest challenge is to become – or remain – relevant to our organizations.
Relevancy gives us the platform we need to show that there is far more to our profession that sending out RFP’s or squeezing the last margin point out of our suppliers. However our path to relevancy is not an easy one. It requires an ever changing skill set to support an evolving value proposition. New delivery models are changing the face of how organizations are accessing procurement people, services and technology. The future of procurement is upon us, and it may look very different from what we are used to.
How do we evolve to elevate procurement in these times of profound change?
It was this quest for knowledge that was the inspiration for The Art of Procurement.
The Art of Procurement podcast was founded with a simple mission: to help elevate the procurement profession through access to actionable insights and an overview of the trends, products and services that are set to transform the procurement value proposition.
