“A mindset that every day is “Day 1” drives me personally as I build and grow the Art of Procurement. Opportunities exist to be taken advantage of; challenges exist to be overcome; and both should be addressed head on.”
This time of year provides a natural opportunity to pause and reflect; standing on the boundary line between old and new, past and future. After skipping the tradition of writing a pair of annual letters in 2020 – because what was there to say that hadn’t already been said? – Philip Ideson uses this week’s episode to consider the foundational philosophy of the AOP team as we head into 2022.
In addition to sharing his reflections on 2021, Philip elaborates on the importance of mindset and culture in the face of what would seem to be never-ending disruption:
- The difference between a ‘Day 1’ and ‘Day 2’ mentality, and what each means for procurement
- Why leading teams will need to drive results through experience, outcomes, and insight to continue fueling their transformational journeys
- The activities that will NOT pave a new path for procurement, despite continuing to be table stakes
