Last month, I was a guest on the monthly teleseminar hosted by Ariba’s “Strategic Sourcing & Procurement” LinkedIn Group. The topic was continuing education in procurement and we had a fun and informal discussion on subtopics like:

  • How procurement has changed in the past 10 years
  • The strategic procurement skills required for success in today’s environment
  • The training topics that procurement professionals are seeking today
  • How to become more strategic if you’re in the trenches of procurement today
  • What statement about continuing education is like nails on a chalkboard to me
  • Social networking’s role in procurement continuing education
  • What one attendee said to a senior finance executive to convince him that certification in procurement was valuable

You can listen to a recording of this teleseminar at (look for the heading “Replay: Continuing Education Discussion”).
