There is little doubt that the requirements for leadership in procurement have changed in the last decade as procurement has achieved its position in the C-Suite. We live in volatile, complex and ambiguous times, with ever-shifting socio, economic, and political landscapes. In an environment where employee trust is at an all-time low, companies are looking to leaders with emotional intelligence and business acumen — opportunity seekers and collaborative relationship builders.
Bill Michels, VP of Operations Americas at CIPS will moderate a discussion with Shelley Stewart, VP of Sourcing and Logistics and Chief Procurement Officer at DuPont.
This will be a wide-ranging discussion about creating and inspiring a diverse global team, building leaders of the future, adapting to change, understanding political dynamics in large companies, mentoring and technology. A research white paper will be available at the end of the session.
