Do you see a change in the new generation of Procurement?
PWC have done some fantastic work around the Millennial Generation https://www.dropbox.com/s/w3jzs6dhjhrhm8e/R1411A-PDF-ENG.PDF?dl=0 - They mention the goals and aims of the new generation in the workforce and how they are driven, specifically about being aligned with companies strategic initiatives and how they will feel more inclined to leave if they are not being followed through. I thought this might be a good topic for discussion given mentions around Procurement being given a seat at the Executive table and the key functions and effort it provides to delivering organisational goals. For those who have been around the Procurement function a while, have you seen a change in the millennial generation for Procurement? Are practices and education changing within your organisation? Have you seen more of the new generation come through formal education channels into organisations?
