MUST READ

Welcome to another week of procurement articles!

For my “must read” this week, I wanted to share an article from Joe Payne of Source One Management Services. I found myself nodding to myself all the way through!

Joe considers what is next for procurement, when, as he writes, what happens when “technology will already know what the stakeholders want and need – and the most efficient way to get it”.
