A single point for procurement-information: utopia or worth trying?

The procurement function is more and more shifting from a purely support function towards a value-adding activity. The rapidness of this shift differs strongly across organizations and is dependent on different factors like size of the company, geographic position/dispersion, organizational structure and type of industry.

Though, at the base of this shift lies awareness of new (procurement related) developments, insights, knowledge and practical experiences. With the rise of social media, a whole new way of gathering and sending procurement knowledge has come into existence. Procurement practitioners, professionals and theorists fill the entire web with their procurement experience and insights. This is a good development for the procurement function, because the information is freely accessible, it comes from first hand and is up to date. Nevertheless, due to the wide offer of different channels on the internet like Twitter and LinkedIn, it may become somewhat confusing. Therefore the goal of this website is to support your quest to the right procurement knowledge and make it more convenient by offering a platform in which different channels are combined. Currently the begin has been made by selecting some of the most obvious channels (weblogs, twitter, and Linkedin groups) and combining these on the website. With your continuously feedback (through twitter) the platform will change along with your desires. Channels, subjects and search terms are added or deleted from the website when the majority of the readers agree with it.
