I have just returned from a speaking engagement for the National Association of Fleet Administrators.
Fleet is one of the newer categories of responsibilities of procurement departments as the role of procurement becomes increasingly expanded. Like other new areas, procurement professionals will have their challenges understanding the technical aspects of fleet and synergizing with their new internal customers.
This particular engagement brought to light several stereotypes that exist about procurement professionals. Once I catch up, perhaps I’ll share some insights on those stereotypes here or in a future edition of PurchTips.
