Procurement Transformation or Procurement Tweaking?

I hope that you have enjoyed the article "True Procurement Transformations, Part I."

As I wrote in the article, procurement transformation "means different things to different people" and I proceeded to list things that will change in a "true" procurement transformation.  What I didn't do was contrast what a procurement transformation is versus what it isn't.

So, I will use this blog post to list some of the things that are sometimes referred to as "procurement transformations" but are merely "tweaks" to the procurement function if done alone.  Here are those examples of procurement tweaks:
If you are only engaging in one of these bullet points, I mean no disrespect.  Certainly making improvements in one facet of procurement is better than continuing to do "business as usual."  I am only saying that it may not be proper to label that activity as a procurement transformation.

Part II of the article coming soon!

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I'm not downplaying that.
