In the current moment, companies are finding themselves at the intersection of digital transformation and the varied but extreme pressures of the pandemic. And who is positioned to address the opportunities and challenges of this intersection? Procurement.

Tony Uphoff is the President & CEO at Thomas - formerly ThomasNet. He has enjoyed a successful career leading and growing media and information businesses such as The Hollywood Reporter, UBM TechWeb, and business.com.

In this conversation, Tony speaks from the perspective of a multiple-time CEO about:

  • How procurement can demonstrate their expanded impact on the business and what is required to gain access to the most strategic discussions in the company
  • How investments in supply chain risk, diversity, and sustainability are starting to affect the valuation of publicly traded companies
  • The impact of COVID-19 on sourcing trends in PPE and beyond based on Thomas’ treasure trove of data, including some really interesting predictors of still trends to come

On November 4, 2015, the Art of Procurement podcast officially launched. In 5 years, we’ve released 345 episodes and surpassed 500,000 listens. We’ve gone from being a new, unproven idea to being a trusted voice in the community and the #1 weekly podcast in all of procurement.

To celebrate this occasion, we are running a special series that will extend through the rest of November. For the next three weeks, there will be a daily 5-minute show that answers one of the most interesting and frequently-asked questions we have received from listeners. The questions will be answered alternately by AOP Founder and Host Philip Ideson and AOP General Manager Kelly Barner. (Fun fact: Kelly was AOP podcast guest #6.)

Thank you for joining us for this series and for being part of the AOP community - whether you have been with us since episode #1 or not!

MRO - or Maintenance, Repair, and Operations spend - is one of those categories that procurement has managed, and managed, and managed again… but don’t make the mistake of thinking there is no value left to realize.

Mike Croasdale has been focused on helping companies manage their MRO spend for years. If you listen to him describe the opportunities in this category, you’re very likely to walk away thinking it is one of the most nuanced and interesting spend categories in the company. MRO presents opportunities for complex analytics, operational understanding, and competitive advantage - if procurement knows where to look.

In this interview, Mike shares his point of view with Philip Ideson and Kelly Barner on:

  • How procurement can combine and leverage many models for managing MRO spend, including GPOs, specialized providers, and large dominant players
  • The status of the ‘customer experience’ enjoyed by procurement’s internal MRO customers
  • What he has observed and expects to see going forward in the PPE subcategory of MRO spend
