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’?

There’s a lot of earnest talk of procurement moving to the next level and getting a seat on the board, but it’s hard to see too much favour being afforded a team that gets in others’ way. No, rather, procurement needs to be an accelerator; an enabler of swift process.

Procurement delivers savings and, at its most effective, business value, but perhaps the legacy of the function is different. As a developer of talent, procurement is in a position to provide expertise into the organisation, but as an exporter of talent into the business, it can be its most influential.

A decision on which font to use could represent huge savings to the US Government, but perhaps the dilemma it poses also helps put procurement’s role into context.

When we’re looking for some kind of roadmap for functions, we might do worse than looking to its closest counterparts: finance.
