Each year, Business Talent Group releases the High-End Independent Talent Report, looking across industries and business functions to analyze how business leaders deploy top independent talent to fill critical skill, expertise, and leadership gaps. Here are the key procurement trends for 2021.
In many organizations, procurement leaders not only manage their own independent talent engagements, but also those of other functions throughout the business. In addition to building enterprise-wide on-demand talent programs, procurement leaders are also tapping independent expertise in their strategic planning exercises, supply chain initiatives, process transformations, and change management efforts.
