085: Next Generation Procurement (Part 1): Will Procurement Exist in 10 Years?

By September 1, 2016 January 4th, 2019 No Comments

What will the future of procurement look like, and how as procurement professionals can we prepare for disruption that is heading our way?

In the first of a two part series, I explore the likelihood that procurement as a function will even exist in 10 years time – in response to a number of projections that I have recently heard about the future of our profession.

I then share my perspective on how I believe procurement will evolve, based on both my personal experiences and learnings to date from interviewing thought leaders on the Art of Procurement.

  • My projection on what the procurement function will look like in 10 years, and the reasonings behind my thinking
