June 2021 Upping The Ante ProcuremenTalk ~ How Procurement is Adding Value

Hosted by Sarah Scudder with The Real Sourcing Network, the June #Ptalk recording is now available!
#FOMO no more! You can get caught up everything you missed from this month's session.
Thanks to our moderator Heather Fotch and panelists Ashish Gupta, Alan Byrne, Carla Di Castro and Susan Harrison for sharing their #procurement experiences with us. They dropped some major GEMS on how they are adding value at their companies.
Key Take-Aways:
--Change your mindset; think of your suppliers as partners to build trust; rename Request For Proposal (RFP) to Request For Partnership (Ashish)
--More emphasis needs to be placed on stakeholder engagement and stakeholder alignment (Carla)
--Find success in the small wins by thinking outside the box - it doesn't hurt to ask stakeholders "why" to get their input in order to help consolidate SKUs and reduce spend; those "small wins" can actually add up to some BIG savings (Susan)
--Listen to your stakeholders and understand what their challenges and struggles are. This makes for a healthier and safer work environment and really shows what a work family is capable of achieving (Alan)
Thanks to our sponsors JAGGAER, RapidRatings, TEKWISSEN ® and Worldwide Services.
