    Buyers Meeting Point Weekly Update for May 4th, 2015

    in Business

    In this week's procurement podcast, I've taken a different approach. With ISM2015 taking place in Phoenix, Arizona, I have recommended the breakout sessions I think are worth your consideration. Rather than recommending sessions based on title and topic alone however, I will suggest which presenters are worth meeting. After all, conferences like ISM are as much about the people you get to meet as they are the information you take in.

    Buyers Meeting Point Weekly Commentary for June 1st, 2015

    in Business

    In this Procurement Perspectives podcast, Kelly Barner shares guest audio from a recent CBS Evening News broadcast about the Lumber Liquidators laminate flooring scandal involving their overseas suppliers. The sudden resignation of their CEO last week serves as an interesting case example of Proxima Group's recent research findings about consumer reactions to companies involved in supplier scandals.

    Buyers Meeting Point Weekly Update for April 27th, 2015

    in Business

    I would once again like to welcome from Buyers Meeting Point to share information of this week's events and news from the world of purchasing, Kelly Barner.


    NOTE: This week's recommended events include webinars on independent contractors and freelancers (SIG, Fieldglass), opportunity analysis (Rosslyn Analytics), and motivating and leading change (SIG, Denali). In this week's guest soundbite, I've pulled in audio that gives us another perspective on an interview series Coupa posted last week based on a conversation I had with their team about social media and supply market intelligence. In today's audio, David Hunt, Senior Manager of Risk Analytics and Indicators at IHS,  applies the social media intelligence gathering approach specifically to security and risk concerns.

    Buyers Meeting Point Weekly Update for April 20th, 2015

    in Business

    I would once again like to welcome from Buyers Meeting Point to share information of this week's events and news from the world of purchasing, Kelly Barner.


    NOTE: This week in procurement events is incredibly busy with 10 events in a four day period. In my opinion, the best webinars address procurement as a service (Spend Matters, gep), relational contracting (IACCM, Revitas), and the next installment of CPO Rising 2015 (Ardent Partners, SAP/Ariba). In this week's guest audio, I have selected an excerpt from the Procurement Unplugged conversation on PI Window last week with ISM CEO Thomas Derry. I believe it was a very good conversation in that it demonstrates just how accurately Derry sees the challenges facing procurement and the changes ISM must make to stay relevant.

    Buyers Meeting Point Weekly Commentary for May 11th, 2015

    in Business

    In this Procurement Perspectives podcast, Kelly Barner shares guest audio from Mark Hager, an author and professor at Arizona State University, discussing the different motivations for joining and engaging in professional associations. This topic is highly relevant right now for two reasons. The first is that we are fresh off of an annual conference marking ISM's 100th year in operation. The other is more disconcerting, and stems from the research Jon has been doing into the finances and operational health of the not for profit associations serving procurement.

    If you want to hear the full Mark Hager podcast, you can access it on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kpc1n7OzYuQ

    His paper on Engagement Motivations in Professional Associations is available as a PDF: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6865799/Hager%20NVSQ%202014.pdf
