“It’s really nice to have a bigger purpose and actually see the communities that you are changing, the lives that you are altering and impacting through the work that you do.” - Andrew Savage, Global Lead: Procurement Excellence at MTN

No one would expect leading an award-winning procurement center of excellence across Africa and the Middle East to be easy, but when you’re bringing goods or services to hard-to-access geographies or communities, it gives an even deeper meaning to the value you are bringing to the business and entire populations of people.

In this AOP podcast episode, Philip Ideson welcomes Andrew Savage, Global Lead: Procurement Excellence at MTN, to talk about his experiences building and leading a large procurement center of excellence across some of the most challenging geographic regions in the world and how that experience has informed his sense of procurement’s value creation. 

In the episode, they discuss:

  • How geographical and geopolitical considerations add both complexity and opportunity to procurement’s role
  • The key ingredients for building a procurement center of excellence even in challenging global environments
  • How the principles of entrepreneurship, flexibility, and agility help transform procurement into a profit center for the business
