One Hundred and Forty Nine Years Ago Today …

An American Legend was born when Jesse James commits his first *confirmed* bank robbery.

What does this have to do with Procurement? Besides the fact that, when you think about it, many suppliers will rob you blind on a daily basis if you are unprepared during the negotiation, during the invoice review, or during the warranty process.

Well, if you think about it, sometimes if you want to get famous, you have to take big risks.

But, more importantly, if you take risks, you can get famous … but in the case of Procurement, you don’t have to rob a bank to make money. You just have to get smart about how you buy. There are savings to be had in every category, and all you have to do is find them to bring millions to the bottom line.  And take the risk of doing something new.

And all you need to do to figure out how is to read the archives, strategy, process, and the tools you need to make it all happen.
