The June edition of Supply Chain Digital is now live!
This month’s issue brings us to Toronto, where we attended ProcureCon Canada and rubbed shoulders with business leaders to create some exclusive features and video content. For our cover feature, we spoke to Sheri Spinks, a prominent member of the Global Council for the Advancement of Women in Procurement, about how diversity has become increasingly important in the procurement space.
“I would encourage more women to get into this space, to educate themselves and to be vocal about the value they can add to organisations,” says Spinks. “Women really do have a different perspective on things like negotiation and relationship building. Generally, we are more empathetic and tuned in with others, we’re good listeners, and we’re great at multitasking – these are skills that are highly valued.”
Elsewhere, we interviewed Sandeep Arora, VP Global Sourcing and Strategy at SPX Transformer Solutions, about the process of implementing a Sourcing Excellence Framework as part of its digitisation journey.
You also won’t want to miss features with World Vision, SEG Automotive, Turkcell, Applus, UnitingCare Queensland and Deloitte in what is another fully-loaded edition! This month’s Top 10 looks at the leading SCM Software Companies in the market today.
