First port of call

9 September 2009
This summer CIPS CEO David Noble told Supply Management he plans to ‘refocus’ the institute. Noble, the first former practitioner to head the institute since 1966, said he wanted CIPS to be the "first port of call" for CPOs, and later CEOs, in the private and public sector, and would provide propositions to "tackle their concerns". This week we publish a more in-depth interview in which he reveals how CIPS can offer procurement chiefs all the help they need to boost purchasing in their organisations. He also explains how CIPS will work with other associations to develop the purchasing and supply standard across the world.
