As procurement professionals, we sometimes don’t see beyond a singular view of procurement’s value: delivering savings to the bottom line. In fact, we can become so introspective that it’s difficult to see the big picture. Often, we face some sort of dilemma analysing how we think about tactical and strategic as procurement concepts as well as what qualifies as tactical work versus what qualifies as strategic work.
In this whitepaper, Denali discusses essential components necessary to allow procurement to shift from a tactical mindset and retool for strategic category management. We’ll examine topics such as resource limitations, skills gaps, training and knowledge management, as well as procurement’s overall reputation.
