    Innovation in Procurement: Alternatives to Traditional Practices

    Innovation in Procurement: Alternatives to Traditional Practices

    Companies constantly talk about being innovative and championing internal innovation as keys to their competitive success. However, what does that actually look like? What’s required to help facilitate that? Embracing innovation typically requires breaking from the standard and accepting some manageable risk, which can contradict typical Procurement and Finance goals.

    For example, working with innovative start-ups requires a different approach than a standard Request for Proposal (RFP). So what are the alternatives to enable collaboration with innovative partners?

    In this podcast episode, Erika Novak, Head of Client Services at Utmost is joined by a panel of experts including Paul Campbell, Dean Edwards, and Roger Jellicoe to discuss business innovation, how to incentivize it, and how to approach procurement with alternatives to standards.
