I hope that you have enjoyed the article “Top 10 Purchasing Changes In 10 Years.”
If you’ve already read it, you’re likely to have identified a change that you thought should have been on the list. It was tough to limit it to 10. Here are some other changes that didn’t make the top 10:
- The Internet Made Supplier Research So Much Easier (actually this is more like 15 years)
- Win-Win Negotiation Got Even More Popular
- More Purchasers Discovered The Risks of Single Sourcing
- The Buzz Over Six Sigma Subsided
- Purchasing/Supply Chain Management Become A Career Destination
- The SPSM Certification Becomes The Premier Purchasing & Supply Management Designation (this would be #1 in my view, but I decided to be modest)
- Too Many More To Mention
So what else has changed from your perspective?
