Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Saver?

15 June 2007

With the new Fantastic Four movie out today, what a perfect way to demonstrate the power of cross-functional teamwork. A team of people, who each have their own special talent, which when used together are able to defeat evil and save the world.

Much the same then as in procurement then, bringing skills together to save the world (through the power of sustainable procurement?). Well, if not the world, at least saving a bit of money.

So we want to know what your Fantastic Four skills are for procurement. You may not need stretchy arms, super strength or invisibility in your job, but what are the special talents you do need? Super negotiation skills perhaps? Or maybe even the special ability to know when salespeople are lying?
