APQC's Marisa Brown, senior principal research lead for supply chain management, summarized and shared the results of APQC’s global research in Future Skillsets of Procurement Professionals, on a September 2019 webinar. As Brown discussed the most critical skills, methods of training and development, and areas of investment for procurement, she also noted significant gaps and opportunities that organizations can no longer afford to ignore. For Brown, driving a sustainable talent pipeline for procurement means recognizing procurement as its own profession and making substantive investments to help ensure that procurement professionals have the skills they need to be successful in tomorrow's business environment.
