Procurement entrepreneurship pays. High-performing procurement teams can deliver huge value to their companies—regardless of industry. The best companies are advancing talent-management strategies into the heart of their procurement organizations with huge success. In addition to an estimated $84 billion in yearly cost savings, companies who give procurement leaders prominence deliver superior returns from their operations as well as lower their costs of goods sold.
