Supply Management – July/August 2016
Volume 21, Issue 6
This issue’s cover feature focuses on donor funding and how it can transform people’s lives. The best way to stop the money being misused by corrupt officials - and retain public support for overseas aid in tough times - is to build a culture of ethical, efficient procurement.
We also speak to Rani Hong, the courageous slavery survivor who is working with the UN, the Vatican and business leaders to implement change; we take a look at what the world might be eating in 2050; analyse development opportunities in the formerly politically isolated nation of Myanmar; and explore how CPD could benefit you.
We also speak to British perfumer Penhaligon’s to discover how to get on in procurement at a small business; explore how the Spanish supermarket chain Mercadona upped its profits in a shrinking market; and look at the impressive CSR initiatives that helped Ghana’s largest newspaper group earn the top award at this year’s CIPS Supply Management Pan Africa Awards.
Elsewhere, we give you advice on what questions to ask potential employees at interview; use Josep Guardiola as an example of how to build your personal brand; take a peek at the history behind luxury car brand Ferrari and the tennis racquet; and reveal how deaf Ukrainians are becoming enslaved in Israel.
