123: The Big Idea: Are You Ready for Procurement 4.0? w/ Tania Seary

By February 20, 2017 January 4th, 2019 No Comments

I am joined for the second time today by Tania Seary, Founder at Procurious.  We focus on a couple of topics that both intertwine with each other.  First, I ask Tania for an update on how things are going at Procurious, and we both share our own motivations for following the paths that we have – in fact Tania turns the table on me by asking a couple of questions on why I started the Art of Procurement.

We then talk about the notion of Procurement 4.0, which will be the focus of the Big Idea Summit, and the impact it is set to have on the way that procurement organizations of the future will operate.
