Does it not frustrate you, when you think you are doing everything that’s best out there, and you still end up in conflict situations with other business stakeholders?
You implement best tools – you hear noise, until people stop using them.
You write best-in-class policies – and the Pareto works against you: 80% of time people do not comply (versus anticipated 20%).
You achieve “improvement” in processes, that procurement controls – but overall business results are worsening.
You hire best negotiators – and they leave the business faster than you manage to pay recruitment bills.
Again and again, you find ways how to “make procurement great again”, but nothing seems to satisfy the business… I was talking about ways to assess the situation and adapt procurement strategy to meet the business needs in a conference and am sharing the material here.
I would gladly share working files and templates to those willing to use them. Thank you for reading, commenting and sharing.
