047: Big Idea Week – That’s a Wrap!

After a flurry of activity over the past couple of weeks – with the site redesign and then the Big Idea Week series, it is nice to get back into a normal routine this week!

And in fact, I don’t intend for today’s show to be very long at all. Rather than diving in to another subject, I would encourage you to go back and pick out a show from the Big Idea week that you may not yet have already listened to.

Listen in to today’s podcast for a summary of the Big Idea Week shows, and for a question that I would like to crowdsource the answer to!

“Behind the scenes we get to see the search terms that people use in Google to find the Art of Procurement.  One such term was ‘how to make procurement less boring’  I’d love to know what you think and I’ll feature the best responses in an upcoming show.”

In this episode, you will learn:

  • A summary of the six Big Idea Week interviews on the Art of Procurement
  • A call for help to answer the following question for an upcoming show: “how can we make procurement less boring?”.
