Skills for the Modern Procurement Professional
PRINCETON, NJ- JULY 18, 2014 – Zycus’ July webinar, ‘Skills for the Modern Procurement Professional,’ is based on the series of articles, titled the same, by analyst firm Ardent Partners. This series published on CPO Rising website talks about breaking down the fundamental skills and capabilities that will enable procurement professionals to succeed and advance in the future.
During this interactive and engaging webinar, Ardent’s Chief Research Officer and series author, Andrew Bartolini, will present the key takeaways from this series. He will be joined by panelists Ti-na Trueba, Executive Director – Global Strategic Sourcing and Americas Shared Services, Celgene Corporation to provide a first-hand view of how CPOs value and assess procurement talent, along with Zycus’ VP, Corporate Development, Richard Waugh, to highlight how technology innovations are supporting the skills required by today’s procurement professional.
If we take a look at job postings for procurement positions these days, it shows that the next generation of procurement leaders are not only expected to be skilled negotiators, but should also expected to be equally adept with both “harder” highly technical skills such as advanced analytics and “softer” engagement capabilities such as supplier relationship management. These expectations are markedly different from even just a few years ago.
Attendees of this webinar will:
- Gain an overview of the critical skills and competencies that drive procurement operations and enable procurement professionals to thrive in their positions
- Understand how leading Chief Procurement Officers evaluate their staffs and rate their capabilities across these key areas
- Learn how to improve their procurement skills and accelerate their careers
The webinar provides a first-hand view of how CPOs value and assess procurement talent and also highlights how technology innovations are supporting the skills required by today’s procurement professional.
