Becoming a Best-In-Class Procurement Organization with People and Process
Here’s a snippet from the story shared by Philip Briscoe, Vice President, Global Procurement & Travel Operations at Equifax, Inc. on Procurement Diaries.

When you get the right people aligned with the right processes, you can create both short term and long term value for the company, with or without Technology. “
