Over the next few months, we’ll be hosting a series of podcasts talking about all things Procurement. We kick off our first episode with two different perspectives: Abdi Azimi, and his 20+ years working in the profession, gives us his view on why things need to change. While Baringa’s Telco & Media Partner, Mansi Patel gives her candid view about how it feels to work with (and around!) Procurement.
