Today’s “Must Read” comes from Derk Erbe at HfS Research. Derk extracts a number of findings from HfS’s recent Procurement-as-a-Service Blueprint, and on the face of it you may look at this as commentary on the procurement services market.
However, I encourage you to look deeper. How organizational leaders are accessing procurement capability is changing, impacting not only the procurement delivery model, but also the skills sets of retained teams (think program and relationship management). There are lots of opportunities for those ahead of the curve, and lots of impact for those who are not!
