    The Procurement Value Proposition: A Discussion with Robert Handfield PhD

    in Business

    When Robert Handfield reached out to me regarding his new book The Procurement Value Proposition, I was obviously interested for a number of reasons.


    To start, Handfield is considered to be a thought leader in the field of supply chain management, and is an industry expert in the field of strategic sourcing, supply market intelligence, and supplier development.


    However, it is the focus of his latest book on procurement’s changing value proposition in the context of a more global viewpoint both from a geographic and practical standpoint.


    Joining me today to talk about procurement’s “changing” value proposition is Dr. Robert Handfield.
