Over the past few months I have seen with increasing frequency, the long-anticipated shift within the global enterprise as it relates to the traditional roles of finance, IT and of course purchasing.The functional silos of each one are dissolving into a collective (some like to say holistic) understanding of the entire operation, including the respective impact each stakeholder has on the bottom line.  As a result, the need to think outside of the proverbial box has never been more critical.
From the purchasing perspective, these new developments perhaps pose an even greater challenge than they do to finance and purchasing professionals.The reasons for this are many, and are all too familiar to those of us who have been in the purchasing world for more years than we would care to admit.So where do we in purchasing go from here and what can we expect in both the near-term and longer-term future?Joining me this noon hour to shed some light on the changes in the purchasing world is Alpar Kamber, who is a Managing Partner with Denali Group and the Founder and Practice Lead of Denali Sourcing Services.
