Changemakers do not have to be leaders but they often are. Changemakers, as we have interviewed them, often talk about their department’s connection to customer satisfaction or their role as leaders supporting the careers of their team or just providing better processes. This new breed of procurement leader shows a blend of empathy and classic management by numbers. These characteristics are what we want to examine closer in the interview.
Join us each month as we explore the key motivations and the driving goals of modern, procurement changemakers. We will discuss the solutions they use, their choices in selection, their methods for cost reduction and their ambitions for the future.
