It’s crazy to think that we are in the home stretch for the rest of the year, but here we are with only 1 month of the year to go. As we wind down on the year, this will be the last This Week in Procurement of the year (with the exception of a “Best of ‘17” edition), as we take time to reimagine how TWIP can improve and bring more value in 2018….
For this week’s “Must Read”, I wanted to share an article from Jonathan O’Brien, CEO of Positive Purchasing and a recent guest on BMP Radio. Jonathan considers why some procurement organizations struggle to realize the benefits of their investment in Category Management while for others it is a game changer. As seemingly more and more procurement organizations undertake transformation programs, this is particularly timely.
Check out Jonathan’s article, and more more, in this week’s This Week in Procurement:
