Procurement Night Talk: Business Acumen - the key to being a strategic Procurement leader

The evening talk covers a collection of business acumen needed for success as we climb the ladder to become a strategic procurement leader.


There is a powerful business trend that is now requiring supply management professionals to move beyond tactical work into strategic leadership. From building relationships with suppliers and internal stakeholders to gathering business intelligence and making better decisions, professionals in procurement and supply chain are more involved in the critical thinking and actions that determine success for their enterprise. This is driven by the ever-expanding percent of corporate outside spending that is wrapped up in the supply chain - up to 70% to 80% in some cases. As a result, organizations are demanding proficiency in a broad range of business skills from their purchasing staff at every level.


Today’s supply management professional must become proficient in all - not just some - of the business skills it takes to drive results for his or her company. 


There are many ways to define business acumen in our procurement field today.
