Structuring Global Procurement
Similar to Finance, Procurement is increasingly centralizing both strategic and operational activities to gain more control over spend.
Trying to manage this on a global scale is no easy feat. Someone with years of experience doing so is Tamara Braun, chief procurement officer at SAP. With her background in finance leadership, she now heads up a global procurement team overseeing SAP’s entire source-to-pay process.
