You: “Hi, boss. I want to transform my procurement department.”
CEO: “Go right ahead!”
You: “But I’ll need some budget to upgrade people, processes, and technology.”
CEO: “You can have whatever money you want.”
You: “I’ll also need the cooperation of other departments.”
CEO: “I’ll tell all department heads to drop whatever they are doing to support you.”
You: “Don’t you want to know more about what I have planned?”
CEO: “Nope. I trust you.”
Have you ever had a conversation with a CEO like this?
