The Hackett Group's Chris Sawchuk joins me to talk about the agile procurement practice and why it is important in today's volatile market. In today's segment, we will focus on the following key points: In the upcoming Procurious' Big Ideas Summit on April 21, you are going to be talking about the need for procurement to be agile in a volatile market. Before we talk about agile procurement, I want to touch on your discussion from last year about the importance of customer-centricity and how it ties into the agility question.We obviously know what the work agility means from a general standpoint, but what does it mean in terms of procurement?You will also be talking about agility in the context of a volatile market.
