If you’re like most procurement leaders, you are at best only partially satisfied with the results your team is producing. You are expected to deliver bigger and better results, but you worry that the skill levels possessed by your team may limit your ability to achieve your goals.

Do you find that you only have one or two team members who can handle your most challenging projects? Or do you find that you are spending too much of your time helping your team members with situations you desperately wish they could handle themselves? Would you love to upgrade the capabilities of your procurement team but don’t know where to start?

Procurement departments can be models of organizational excellence. They can be comprised of people who apply their skills to deliver measurable bottom line impact to the organization. They can be departments where the leader actually has the time to do what he or she is paid to do – lead. If your procurement department isn’t quite there yet, you are not alone. It is easy to get stuck in a rut unless you have a step‐by‐step plan for identifying opportunities for improvement and then acting upon those opportunities. But it hasn’t been easy to find an easy plan to implement…until now!

The next NLPA webinar, “7 Steps For Fueling Better Procurement Team Performance,” will guide you through a seven-step process to identify what skill improvements are needed and how to make them as painlessly as possible.  This webinar will be held on Wednesday May 25, 2016, at 11:30AM Eastern US Time.
