“On average, how many times his/her salary does a procurement professional save?”
That’s just one of the questions that is answered in the just-released 2013 Purchasing & Supply Management Career & Skills Report – a publication annually issued by the Next Level Purchasing Association (NLPA). The report is free to all NLPA members and an NLPA basic membership itself is free and instant.
In addition to learning the answer to the above question by reading the report, you’ll learn:
- What skill procurement professionals think is most important to their jobs (HINT: Once again this year, it is NOT negotiation)
- What the average per-person annual cost savings for procurement professionals is overall as well as in over 50 different industries
- What effect certification has on cost savings performance
- And more!
