I have a number of articles to share with you this week – a lot of great writing from practitioners, providers and analysts alike!
The one that caught my eye the most, and that I wanted to share as my “Must Read” is written by Bradley Stewart, Head of Growth and Partnerships at Delivering Procurement Services for Aid (DPSA).
In this article, titled “Procurement as an Engine for Innovation”, Bradley shares ways in which procurement is leading innovations within the aid sector. However, whatever the sector you are involved in, there are lessons to learn – particularly in introducing innovative new business models, or enabling our organizations to think more holistically about how to solve problems in new ways by taking advantage of innovative supply markets.
Check out Bradley’s article, along with thirteen other piece of procurement writing that I read this week below.
