This Week in Procurement

AOP Saturday Linkfest: Accelerating Supplier Enabled Innovation: What You Need to Know.

Happy Saturday!

The Linkfest is slightly later than normal this week – I just returned home from a week in Florida working on a number of exciting Art of Procurement initiatives that I cannot wait to share with you soon!  This included return flights on an airline without wifi – how did we cope 🙂

However, all is not lost! Thanks to a great app called Pocket, I was able to catch up on my procurement reading on the flight home, and I found these four articles that I wanted to share this week (plus one update from last week):

  • I am a sucker for any article that has “procurement” and “sport” in the title.  What Procurement Can Learn from Sport, from procurement writing duo Anya McKenna (Market Dojo) and Ed Cross (Odesma) didn’t disappoint.  Anya and Ed explore seven different factors that contribute to a growth mindset, and how they have applied these factors both in their personal (sport) and professional (procurement) lives.
  • Finally, I am reposting this article from last week, where I used the wrong link by mistake: Giles Breault and Sammy Rashed of The Beyond Group have been writing an interesting series over on Procurement Leaders about procurement and intrapreneurship.  In this latest installment, Giles considers how procurement professionals can stand out from the crowd by building their own personal brand.

Happy reading, and have a great weekend!
