109: The Importance of Mindset in Challenging the Status Quo w/ Elisabeth Schlag Lawrence

By November 24, 2016 January 4th, 2019 No Comments

More and more, I believe the mindset is a key enabler or roadblock in our efforts to think differently and elevate the procurement value proposition.  Without that change in mindset, it makes the other necessities – such as competency development – almost irrelevant. And so I wanted to focus today in the topic of mindset.

Today’s episode is a submission from Elisabeth Schlag Lawrence that was originally a part of The Procurement Revolution. Elisabeth is a long time procurement executive who shortly after recording todays piece joined a leading materials company to lead and grow their Category Management Center of Excellence.

“To me, procurement is not a function.  Procurement is a fully integrated team of people that needs to collaborate deeply with other functional areas.”
