PLQ: Breaking the planning cycle

The latest PLQ magazine issue takes an in-depth look at the topic of planning and focuses in on whether the cycle that procurement is currently on is the most effective.
Highlights include:
  • Cost vs strategy. Procurement has long claimed to want to move away from savings but has struggled to make that dream a reality. We look at what is holding the function back
  • How the planning process has changed. There is no doubt that the planning process has changed, but just how much? Here we examine what has changed and the areas procurement now looks at more closely
  • Career planning. Planning is not just about setting out a strategy for your function. It is about planning your own career path. We speak to three former procurement chiefs about what they did next
