Buyers Meeting Point has built up quite an arsenal of procurement-related content over on their growing site. While quite a bit of the content consists of summaries of reviews of third-party events, webinars, and the like – sharing “the best of the best,” if you will – they also have some great original content as well.
That original content includes a review of “The Procurement Game Plan: Winning Strategies and Techniques For Supply Management Professionals” – the book I co-authored with procurement thought leader, Dr. Soheila Lunney – as well as several exclusive interviews with myself and Dr. Lunney. In case you missed these entries on the site, I will link to each and provide some nuggets from each here…
Book Review: The Procurement Game Plan – In this article, Buyers Meeting Point co-owner, Kelly Barner, gives an overwhelmingly positive review of the book, saying that she highly recommends the book as an addition to your professional library and that “The Procurement Game Plan does not disappoint.” She shares her three favorite sections of the book and provides some excellent commentary.
Interview With Soheila Lunney, Part I – In this segment of the interview, Barner and Dr. Lunney discuss Dr. Lunney’s background and how it has helped her develop into the thought leader she is today. They also cover that oh-so-important topic of how procurement professionals really need to get up to speed with financial principles in order to maximize their positive impact on their organizations.
Interview With Soheila Lunney, Part II – In this segment of the interview, Barner and Dr. Lunney hit on an amazing amount of value in a very small amount of space. In an article that takes mere minutes to read, you will learn about supply risk management, managing backdoor selling, and improving internal relationships. Good stuff!
Interview With Charles Dominick – This interview is more about the Next Level Purchasing Association and how we work to help procurement professionals learn best practices and keep up with the rapid changes in the profession.
I hope that you get a chance to check out these links as well as the other stuff that’s on Buyers Meeting Point. It’s all about keeping up with – or, preferably, keeping ahead of – the changes in the profession and they, like the Next Level Purchasing Association, help you do just that in different, yet complimentary ways.
