This Week in Procurement

AOP Linkfest: Why I Quit Often

By July 16, 2016 February 23rd, 2020 No Comments

Happy Saturday!

With the amount of procurement related content published this week, I am surprised that any actual work was completed!  I contributed to this with a long form post based on personal experiences during my career – 5 Steps to Break Free from a Stalled Procurement Career.

This week, I have four articles to share:

  • Why I Quit Often.  I love this article, from Nicholas Ammaturo of Coach on a couple of different levels.  First, it speaks to advice I often give to those who ask me for career help – that if you are good at what you do, do not stay in a job which you do not enjoy or feel motivated by, because you have options.  Second, from an employer perspective, retaining your best people is about creating an environment around which they are challenged, appreciated and rewarded.
  • SRM and the Importance of Teamwork.  Ex-CPO and SRM Expert David Atkinson of Four Pillars explains why cross-functional teamwork is key to ensuring that your investment in SRM returns more than a just a modest – if any – return on investment. 

Have a great weekend!
