• Procurement Says No Ep14 Deus Ex Machina

    15 MAY. 2024 · Ashley Williams from Mishcon de Reya is back as we delve further into artificial intelligence and machine learning.  Will machines save us?  Will capitalism save us?  What will the world’s despots do with this technology?  Is this a turtle on its back?   Will Charlie Watts really play drums on a new Whitney album?  Will lawyers and procurement people be replaced by bots?   Who’s best – big companies or small companies?  What is intent prediction and will Ed go to prison for a crime he is yet to commit?  Or will we just be regulated to a higher standard (oh, that’s a bit dull)?   All of these questions will be answered, sort of.  And we have news of a very exciting procurement job in construction (no, really); procurement’s role in creating massive plastic pollution; procurement podcast lists (we love a list); and who really cares about the top 10 ERP systems.   Plus your questions on travel sourcing and AirB&B; above the line marketing; and the best categories for big savings. Don’t press the red button; press the link below instead.

  • Procurement Says No Ep13 Artificially Intelligent

    22 ABR. 2024 · Rich and Ed invite another super-duper special guest star to the podcast – Ashley Williams is a partner at Mishcon de Reya, specialising in all things AI, who talks to us about EU and US approaches to AI; whether your AI controlled car will kill you or random pedestrians whilst you’re playing Candy Crush; data scraping; Love Island and the wonderfully broad definition of AI.  It’s procurement, but it’s personal. We’ve also got a distinct lack of news; except for a very exciting CPO conference coming up in May; the price of cocoa and eggs; some very un-bureaucratic sounding EU innovation awards and oh, CIPS again. And of course, more of your questions for “Ask Rich and Ed” – this time we ponder jumping ship into a procurement consulting role; whether to go to a procurement EXPO; what’s the worst category to manage; and what’s the next Procurement bandwagon you should be jumping on! Don’t be scared of the future – just download Episode 13 instead.  Unlucky for some.

  • Procurement Says No Ep12 Listmania/Listeria

    24 MAR. 2024 · Rich and Ed have noticed that everyone is banging on about lists - so they’ve joined the bandwagon of creating lists about stuff.  We’ve got lists from Elon, PWC and, er, a Linked-In algorithm on procurement top 10 skills!   We’ve also got news from CEPA, WMBC and CEBI, the mystery of CIPS and CCS; and that your BEV might by spying on you. So many acronyms, so little time. And we’ve got loads of your questions - this time about whether TFM is good for you, UNSPSC (jeez, more acronyms); what to do when your supplier threatens to put you “on stop”; going “best of breed”; what’s in vogue in procurement organisation design; and whether to make up your savings performance.  All wrapped together in another specially extended edition of procurement delight. Get it now on all of the Podcasty places.  IN2P.

  • Procurement Says No Ep11 Procurement Guru #2

    26 FEB. 2024 · We've turned it up to 11 where Rich and Ed welcome back special guest, and Procurement Guru, Peter Smith, who bangs on about Bad Buying (including the story of Fat Leonard; the Wrong Incentives); the madness of HS2; AI and replicant procurement people, and whether the world is going to end. We also discuss Apple's continuous improvement blah, blah, blah; whether you should be zigging or zagging; and buying bits for aircraft in India. And we have yet more answers for your questions - which stakeholders should you talk to; what to do if your supplier goes bust (DON'T run away) and what to do if you find you've signed up to an "in perpetuity" clause (you fool). Now that we are No9 in Uganda (as well as in the charts in Saudi Arabia, Kenya, Hungary, UAE and many others) there's no better time to listen to the Premier Global Procurement Podcast thingy. Take a listen or you might find yourself lost in time, like tears in rain. Or inadvertently setting fire to the sky. It happens.

  • Procurement Says No Ep9 Resolution Revolution

    1 ENE. 2024 · Rich and Ed have their crystal balls at the ready with some predictions for 2024. What's the focus for Procurement this year (er, apart from savings)? Will we become T-shaped commercial people? Is it centralise or decentralise this time around? Are procurement systems really getting better? Will AI finally set fire to the sky, or at least do a decent job of an RFP? We also answer your questions on whether you can be a born negotiator; how to convince others that your saving is real; whether you should go into Procurement as a career (or get out); and which of the Big4 is best. We also have disturbing news about CIPS (trouble at t’mill); yet more stats from CAPs and Cheetah; and a bonkers left-over Christmas rhyme. This is the future. The future is now. Today is yesterday’s tomorrow. You get the picture.
