Art of Procurement helps procurement executives align their performance with enterprise objectives.
How an organization harnesses external supply markets can be a competitive differentiator – from increased and sustainable cost optimization to reduced supplier risk and the enablement of business growth.
Procurement is perfectly positioned to be the catalyst that connects supplier performance with corporate objectives. However, that positioning does not always equate to impact at scale – nor does it happen naturally. Some organizations are earlier in their maturity journey, attempting to sell the procurement value proposition to their peers. Others are well positioned but require additional expertise to address unexplored opportunities.
