189: It’s All About the Outcomes w/ Dawn Tiura, CEO SIG & Greg Tennyson, CPO VSP Global

By June 18, 2018 January 4th, 2019 No Comments

As part of our partnership, we publish a podcast every 2nd Wednesday, called the Sourcing Industry Landscape, that I hosted by SIG CEO, Dawn Tiura.

We now have 10 of these podcasts published, from a range of practitioners and service providers from companies such as FIS, Ariba, ConnXus, Thirty-One Gifts, and more.

What I thought I’d do this week, for a change, was to publish the most recent episode of the Sourcing Industry Landscape pod on the Art of Procurement.  

There’s a couple of reasons I’m doing that.  First, if you haven’t checked out Sourcing Industry Landscape before, it may serve as a good introduction.  You can subscribe just by searching for Sourcing Industry Landscape in your favorite podcast app.

But second, I really enjoyed the interview! Dawn interviews Greg Tennyson, the CPO of VSP Global and former CPO of Oracle and Salesforce.

Greg has been a regular on Art of Procurement, and in her interview, Dawn asks Greg a number of questions that I’ve always been interested in too.  They cover Greg’s career journey and some of his decision points, the details behind VSP’s Moolah campaign which remains a great example of how to build awareness of, and engagement with, procurement, and then Greg offers his perspective on what is needed for professionals who aspire to be a CPO.
