Thanksgiving is a special occasion. It is a time for gratitude and appreciation for all the positive things in life. At home, one is grateful for family, friends & good health.
In a professional context, one can, and should, give thanks to their colleagues, partners & other stakeholders for continued success.
So, what would a successful CPO’s 2022 Thanksgiving prayer sound like?
I am thankful for my procurement team, the anchors in the storm –
who helped the production team through various supply-chain-disrupting events such as the Suez Canal blockage, Chinese port lockdowns, Russia-Ukraine geopolitical conflicts, trade wars, and semiconductor shortages, by predicting & reacting rapidly to supplier failures, thereby avoiding significant production delays
These votes of thanks should be part of each CPO’s Thanksgiving prayers. However, if these prayers sound like a utopian ideal, it is an indication that your organization needs process improvements and a digital transformation, to achieve maximum success.
So, this festive season, take action and put Cognitive Procurement on your wish list to your Secret Santa!
