With it being a holiday weekend here in the United States, I thought I would do is share with you one of my favorite submissions from The Procurement Revolution event from back in late September.
More and more, I believe the mindset is a key enabler or roadblock in our efforts to think differently and elevate the procurement value proposition.
Without that change in mindset, it makes the other necessities – such as competency development – almost irrelevant. And so I wanted to focus today in the topic of mindset.
Today’s piece was one that I really enjoyed.
It is a submission from Elisabeth Lawrence. Elisabeth is a long time procurement executive who just after we recorded todays piece joined a leading materials company to set up their Category Management Center of Excellence.
You will hear Elisabeth talk about the need to shift mindsets if we are to take procurement to the next level.
