142: Is “Best-in-Class” Procurement a Fallacy?

By July 3, 2017 January 4th, 2019 No Comments

It is Independence Day week here in the US, and so what I thought I would do today is to go back into the achieves and replay one of my solo shows that I recorded almost 18 months ago now.

It is a topic that I remain passionate about – why I think we in procurement should care less about being “best-in-class”, and more about what our internal organization really needs from a procurement function.

“Rather than chasing best in class, look at where you are today, and think about what’s important to your organization. Understand what your business needs from a procurement function.”
