Elevating the impact of procurement

Our Story

Procurement professionalized in an era where optimizing supplier spend meant an obsessive focus on price while acting as an internal gatekeeper against non-compliant purchasing practices. 

While this may be important for some companies, we believe that procurement has the potential to make an even bigger impact. By skillfully aligning the power of the supply base with the needs of the stakeholders they serve, procurement can be a competitive differentiator.

But it isn’t easy, and it needs a modern approach.  One that positions procurement as a strategic services business within a business, rather than a functional silo.

We created Art of Procurement to help procurement professionals and teams challenge the status quo and fully align their performance with corporate objectives.
