BOSTON and LONDON, Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attention procurement and supply chain professionals: How can you change the game, and make a disproportionate difference to your organization? What are five surefire ways to become a CPO? With globalization and technological change disrupting every aspect of your profession, making time to update your skills can catapult you up the ladder. Leadership skills are in high demand, according to Deloitte's third annual Global Supply Chain Survey. Eight out of ten (79 percent) of the supply chain executives responding to this research said it was "very" or "extremely important" for new hires to have leadership and professional competencies.
Starting September 19, 2016, Procurious.com will launch a free and exclusive Career Boot Camp Program to get you in prime condition for these opportunities. For three weeks, you'll be able to strengthen a different set of muscles every business day. Unleash your "procurement mojo", take your conscience to work, network your way to the top, incubate your big idea on the job, build your personal scorecard, and become a global player. Each morning, you'll wake up to a new (five-minute) podcast, blog and group discussion centered on specific career topics like these.
With 16,000+ members, Procurious is the world's leading free online community for innovative, ambitious procurement and supply chain professionals. The Boot Camp program adds to Procurious' skill development, professional networking, and market intelligence offerings.
