Since January, we have been airing a series of what you could call informal, off the cuff interviews with a number of executives and experts from various areas of the procurement world, regarding what I would consider to be the three most important questions in our industry for 2015.

While there are certainly more questions regarding the procurement world than the ones I will be posing to our guest today, these three have been the most prominant for my listeners and readers.

Here are the three questions:

1. In his latest book Dr. Robert Handfield talked about the definite and definitive break between older or past generation procurement professionals and the new, emerging generation. In short, he indicates that everything that has been done and learned in the past will not be useful to this next generation of procurement pros?

2. The emergence of eCommerce and the mobile supply chain - what does it mean in terms of technology, practice and ultimately impact and influence?

3. Is there a difference between the public and private sector procurement practice in this brave new world?

Joining me today is Marie Meliksetian CEO of Reliance Solutions Services, LLC.
