Quick Wins for the New Procurement Leader
INDUSTRY WHITEPAPER

Quick Wins for New Procurement Leaders

When starting in a new role, it's important that you make your mark quickly.


In this whitepaper, we looks at why it is important for new procurement leaders, in whatever leadership role they hold, to focus on demonstrating some “quick wins” in their relatively early days in the job.

Those quick wins must be aligned with longer-term strategic goals and places, but showing benefits quickly is important for credibility and confidence. That means both the leader’s own confidence, and the confidence that the organization and stakeholders have in the individual.
