In their day-to-day work, procurement and supply chain managers work with many different stakeholders, from executives in other sectors, reps from partner companies to salespeople at suppliers. This level of interaction makes for fascinating variety but also poses challenges that complicate day-to-day operations. External factors and influences from other sectors can mean that the success of effective procurement is overshadowed or overlooked, at least if procurement objectives are not clearly defined or measured. In this edition, we show you how procurement organisations prepare for these influences and how procurement managers can demonstrate their organisation’s performance far beyond cost savings.
