Taking initiative

27 September 2007

A reader has asked SM:

I want to undertake some investigative work with other non-competitive businesses to find out what initiatives leading procurement functions are focussing on.

Do you have any advice on how best to approach businesses for this purpose?

- Procurement manager, Berkshire

Can you offer any advice based on your experience?
