This week, I have combined two weeks into one edition of This Week in Procurement. For the first time last week, I didn’t come across enough good content that I wanted to share! Is that indicative of the fact that a lot of the content out there is too bland, or not that insightful? It is getting harder to find those needles in the haystack. I’d love to hear your perspective…
That being said, as soon as I read this week’s “Must Read”, I knew it would be the “Must Read”. Written by David Atkinson of Four Pillars Consulting, it goes straight to the heart of something I am very passionate about. “Why” do we even exist, and what is our purpose?
If you do nothing else this week, please read David’s post, and add in your thoughts to the comments:
