As someone who has been in the supply world for more years than I would care to admit, the old Rodney Dangerfield lament about getting no respect was second only to the "we want a seat at the table" refrain.
While the profession as a whole had made some advancements beyond the days when CFOs considered our enterprise contributions to be either minimal or non-existent, it is still safe to say that we procurement professionals
have not properly branded ourselves and the value we bring to our organizations.
"Some executives used to think of procurement as the place you send staff away in order to never see them again." - Leading Procurement Strategy, Carlos Mena, Remko van Hoek, Martin Christopher
In this webinar sponsored by Zycus, we will look at where procurement as a profession were, where are they today, and what they have to do to realize their full potential in the future.
This Webinar Event Includes 1 CEH Certificate, which will be provided to live attendees after the conclusion of the presentation.
