So what else does it take to be part of the new breed of procurement talent? In part one of “Designing a New Breed of Procurement Professional,” we discussed how traditionally “qualified” candidates aren’t filling the needs of the modern procurement organization and touched on what new skills will make an impact.
Filling today’s advanced procurement roles is a much greater challenge than many expect. Whether a procurement department is trying to fill a vacancy on the staff or simply failing to deliver the expected level of impact in an evolving organization, the underlying issue is often the same: they need to find the right talent. It takes a new breed of procurement talent to fill the roles in modern procurement organizations.
