Has Procurement really changed?

Author: Tim Cummins

The field of Procurement has been undergoing rapid and significant change. All the experts predict that the era of change is not over - indeed, quite the opposite - it is speeding up.

How successful has Procurement been in making the adjustments expected of it? IACCM has been undertaking research - 'Procurement Present & Future' - to find the answer and to discover priorities for further improvement. While input from the function itself has been welcomed, our particular focus has been on those who interact with Procurement - other internal functions and stakeholders, plus suppliers.
