The Importance of Soft Skills in Procurement

The Importance of Soft Skills in Procurement | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it

Following the ‘soft skills’ theme of last year’s CIPS conference and in the lead up to Langley’s round table event next week on The Importance of Behaviours in Procurement, this week’s guest blog focuses on the importance of behaviours and soft skills to procurement success – and how to develop these to the benefit of individuals, team and organisations.

Hard Facts about Soft Skills: The Importance of Behaviours in Procurement

Kim Godwin, Director of P&SCM Associates, a firm specialising in the assessment and development of soft skills

The importance of behavioural ‘soft’ skills to procurement is now widely recognised, reinforced as a key theme at this year’s CIPS conference and by a recent survey that identified soft skills as being one of the key constraints to fully exploiting category management. The ability to influence stakeholders is often cited as the key skill, but this underplays the scope and scale of impact that soft skills have on all aspects of procurement, and in particular the procurement of services and indirects.

Improving sustainable practices
In its effort to reduce risks of disruptions while still managing to be sustainable and efficient in operations, some supply chain leaders are at a crossroads. This predicament is understandable since, as Ian Lefshitz, a contributor to Supply Chain Executive, worded it, "While there are obvious long-term benefits to more sustainable practices, a major challenge for corporations and procurement professionals in particular is ensuring that the entire supply chain meets established standards."

EcoVadis's curator insight, February 1, 2:34 AM

Consistent engagement in reporting drives improvement actions - almost 70% of 3rd year reporting companies start GHG reduction programs- great! As for the 50% response rate, I assume these are fairly large companies, eventually their stakeholders will demand they report their emissions - and possibly even local laws (for example if carbon pricing starts being implemented).

How is the world of procurement changing? | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Procurement is an ever-changing industry, which means that buying organisations and supply chain managers need to stay on top of their game to stand out from the crowd and keep the level of risk facing their business to an absolute minimum.

One of the biggest changes in the industry in recent years is the emergence of new technology. There is now a whole host of platforms and software available to buyers to help them better manage their supply chains, but they need to be sure they're using the right one for them to minimise risk.
