Two years ago, Lisa Martin took over as the Teva Pharmaceutical’s chief procurement officer and set about a major transformation of the procurement function, and she has focused on four buckets of opportunity in order to do so.
Think of the exorcist: I bet what you come up with is a far cry from the corporate world of suits and boardrooms. But when we talk of a procurement function undergoing a transformation, the strange parallels become clear.

There is, the saying goes, more than one way to skin a cat – as if you’d want to do that. Similarly, there are myriad management styles and personalities, most of which have a time and a place where they are the most effective. But is effective leadership always reliant on context, or is there such a thing as a ‘great leader’?
