Webinar: Why Changing Your Mindset is Crucial to Procurement Success

webinar description

Join John P. (Jack) Miles, Kelly Barner and Philip Ideson in this interactive Q&A led webinar as we discuss why a change in mindset is crucial to be successful in the new age of procurement.

This webinar is part of The Procurement Revolution, a multi-channel 100% online event for procurement professionals to challenge the status quo and collectively shape the future of procurement.

We’ve all heard the feedback: procurement needs to communicate more effectively and invest more time and energy into our brand image if we want to partner with stakeholders and suppliers. While these are collective goals, they must be executed on an individual level through increased emphasis on active listening, behavioral studies, and an ability to connect personally with individuals inside and outside of the organization.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • To see the connection between changed mindset and success

  • To understand the preparation that is required for successful change

  • To hear why procurement must embrace rather than just accept change
