It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years since I first shared with you, my thoughts regarding the procurement world.

I must admit that I was a little surprised when I received an e-mail from Zycus indicating that they wanted to talk with me to provide an update on their company. It is not because I am not a good conversationalist. I think that I can be an interesting, delightful, and perhaps even entertaining contributor to any […]
