This Week in Procurement

AOP Saturday Linkfest: First Edition

By March 12, 2016 February 23rd, 2020 No Comments

Throughout the course of each week, I come across a ton of procurement related content – some great and sadly, some filler.  So I am trying an experiment.  I am going to share with you the best content that I have found related to all things procurement during the last 7 days (and I hope you share my tastes!)

If you didn’t catch it already, my interview with Brian Umbenhauer, Global Head of Deloitte’s Sourcing & Procurement practice is shaping up to be the most listened episode yet.  We dug beneath the numbers to discuss how CPO’s are addressing the findings of Deloitte’s 2016 CPO Survey.

Ok, let’s go into this weeks links:

  • Are procurement professionals stuck in the stone age?  Anya McKenna of Market Dojo and Ed Cross of Odesma explore what procurement software designers can learn from their B2C counterparts in this two part series (Part 1; Part 2) (I came across Part 2 this week which compelled me to dig into the archives and find Part 1!)
  • Mark Wan, Head of Strategic Sourcing at Webster Bank, shared an engagement continuum to help sourcing professionals and leaders plot where they are – and where they want to be – in terms of engagement with business stakeholders: Procurement/Sourcing Engagement with the Front Office (LinkedIn Pulse)

Ok, that concludes the first Art of Procurement Saturday Linkfest.  I’d love to hear your feedback.  Too many links? Just right? Should I just provide the link without the commentary?  Just let me know in the comments section, below.

Have a great weekend,

Phil
