Creating Harmony Across Business Partners
Procurement leaders wear multiple hats, with managing organizational spend and enforcing proper procurement policies being of constant importance. The procurement landscape is inundated with a number of activities like purchase requisition management, purchase order process, contract management, supplier lifecycle management and many more.
Within your organization, marketing and sales teams likely contract with a wide variety of vendors and agencies. Being a strategic business partner means identifying the right agency or vendor, tracking their performance to contracted service expectations and ultimately promoting the value of your team. It’s also important that all of these vendors and agencies are aligned in terms of delivering critical data needed to optimize marketing investments and understand performance expectations. It’s a difficult proposition, but there is a way to make it happen.
