I was fortunate to the be in the audience recently to listen to today’s guest, Dr Robert Handfield, give a talk on the future of procurement analytics, and the impact that access to real-time and predictive analytics will have on the procurement function. I was delighted when Rob agreed to share his thoughts with me on the Art of Procurement.
Rob talks passionately about how procurement is at in inflection point – where our ability to deliver value by using old tools such as leveraging spend is coming to an end. Rob believes that analytics will be the fuel that propels both the relevancy and maturity of procurement to the next level.
