2020 is a year most procurement professionals will never forget. Our supply chains were thrust into the spotlight overnight while we were all sent home to address a whole new set of enterprise supply needs. Distributed teams scrambled to keep processes flowing, working from dining rooms and basements while home-schooling our children. It was not easy, but we made it work.
The supply and workforce management challenges that have arisen over the last few months have raised additional new questions. How can companies enable their people to be productive from home immediately and in the longer term? Where are people working from? Who needs the ability to remain on-site? How can the business aggregate approvals quickly so that shipments are not delayed? These are just a few of the issues facing leadership teams today – and many of the best solutions require procurement to outperform prior expectations.
