The goal is to achieve optimal coordination with finance, supply chain, and commerce. The emphasis on creating value to the business risks being diluted since operational procurement occupies so much time and energy. How do you go from a cost center to a value generator in the procurement department? Where do I begin? Do we collaborate with customers, colleagues, and suppliers?
