What if procurement was your friend and not your enemy? Imagine how much more work you could win!
Yet agency leaders see the procurement process as a painful obstacle course they need to stumble through. With heads in hands, despairingly asking 'why?', they think that procurement exists to block and not to enable. Procurement doesn't want to see the brilliant creative and stats you've put together in response to the RFP, they just want to see the spreadsheet and forms. Worst of all, how dare they ask me how much profit I'm making!
The reality is that procurement performs an essential business function and, with big brands, there's no getting round the scrutiny. So why not learn how to become a friend to procurement and turn the obstacle into an opportunity?
