In this episode, AOP Host Philip Ideson and Kelly Barner (General Manager of AOP and Owner of Buyers Meeting Point) discuss their major take-aways from October’s news, industry topics and podcast interviews.
In October, we heard a total of seven podcasts:
- A solo show from Philip Ideson on Getting Executive Buy-in for a Procurement Change Initiative
- A five-part series with leadership team from Efficio, titled “A CPO’s First 100 Days”
- An interview with Ryan Flynn, a Principal at Deloitte Consulting, about their 8th annual CPO Survey
This month’s discussion topic is one that most procurement professionals – most people, in fact – think about this time of year… How can I set myself up for success in the new year? With less than 60 days remaining in 2019, there isn’t a minute to waste. The AOP team is already actively engaged in the planning process, and we are positive 2020 is going to a much brighter – and bolder – year!
Thanks to everyone for listening in to This Month in Procurement. Please feel free to reach out with questions or comments.
