AOP Saturday Linkfest: Are We Highly Effective at the Wrong Thing?

By May 21, 2016June 25th, 2023No Comments

Happy Saturday!

I am back from ISM2016, and happy to be on the ground and in one place for a couple of weeks! However, the time in the air was not wasted as it gave me plenty of time to catch up on the best procurement content from around the interwebs this week!  With that in mind, here are five articles that I wanted to share: 

  • Are we Highly Effective at the Wrong Thing?  Tom Lewis of the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising thinks so.  Tom shares his perspective – as a stakeholder – on the role of procurement in buying marketing services.  While the article focuses on marketing, I think the question that he poses is important for us all to reflect on: are we focused on achieving our objectives vs. our stakeholders, and what impact is that having on them?

Happy reading, and have a great weekend!
