    Procurement Is from Pluto; Stakeholders Are from Saturn

    Keertan Rai Ariba Contributor

      You can sail in a ship by yourself,

      Take a nap or a nip by yourself.

      You can get into debt on your own.

      There are lots of things that you can do alone. But it Takes two to tango … 

      Dean Martin



      As a procurement leader, you know it best. The success of procurement initiatives hinges on stakeholder participation.   Your stakeholders count on you for more than just saving dollars. And procurement holds the potential to deliver benefits beyond cost savings. Yet communicating the true value of procurement to your stakeholders seems a challenge.



      How do you be the partner of choice in helping them succeed in a simpler, faster, trusted, and risk-managed fashion? What does it take for procurement to align and influence? How do you speak your stakeholder’s language?  Participate and engage with the procurement stalwarts as they present their best practice secrets.
