I was recently introduced to a new social network: Procurious. Procurious is a niche social network and online community created for procurement and supply chain professionals. It is a wealth of information, resources, and opportunity. Developed by procurement and supply chain professionals, Procurious offers a wealth of resources and opportunity for those within the industries.
Within five years social media literacy will be the single greatest factor distinguishing top performing procurement leaders from the rest. Now don’t get me wrong – that’s not to diminish the importance of superior financial skills, sourcing, and/or change or people management abilities, but simply to say that social media will add a new dimension
