The following quotes are taken from emails circulated between participating members after a recent PASA Connect round-table and site tour:
“Thank you for hosting and providing the opportunity to engage directly with your team and taking the time out for a site tour.” (Head of Group Procurement)
“Xxxxx* – you have provided inspiration for a topic we’ve discussed a number of times as a team – visual management and promotion of how we add value. Thank you!” (Head of Procurement, Group Procurement)
“Xxxx* – I was very impressed with your visual planning and of particular interest was your strategy on a page.” (Head of Procurement)
“I’d like to genuinely thank everyone for yesterday’s meeting and once again state how beneficial I find our gatherings. Xxxx* you have encouraged me by example to do a lot better on the visual reporting front!” (Group Manager Procurement)
“Thanks for the terrific plant tour, for hosting the meeting and for sharing the processes your teams are using. Your visibility board is very impressive.” (Head of Procurement)
To which the host CPO replied:
“Networking and sharing with our peers is one of the most important things I think we can do as team leaders. Allows us to challenge our own status quo and learning from others is super important. I would do this 10 times over taking a meeting with a procurement services provider trying to pitch me. Happy to share any of the materials you saw yesterday in my walk around if this might be of interest.” – (Vice President Global Procurement)
Whether it is a topic, category or procurement leadership round-table like this, the quotes above are an example of the kind of communications we frequently see following PASA Connect round-tables.
