A day in the life of a Generation Y Procurement Professional

Views: 255 Published: 16 Mar 2009 Average Rating: unrated Print

IACCM recently interviewed Vaughn Hovey, Lecturer at The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business and former Chief Sourcing Officer at Nationwide Mutual Insurance. Vaughn has focused his recent studies on the way that networked technologies will transform the world of work and how professionals of the future will undertake their tasks. He also highlights the growing generational divide as new workers, skilled at the use of networking, collide with those who are more reliant upon traditional, experience-based forms of learning. This extract is taken from a paper entitled "Improving Procurement Effectiveness Utilizing Web 2.0 Capabilities", but his interest in the topic spans all those involved in forming and managing trading relationships and market management.
