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?
