281: Planning for 2020 – This Month in Procurement

By November 4, 2019 No Comments

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.
