If a woman thinks she has a flair for this job, then this should be her world
Over the years, the procurement industry has become dominated by men. Besides that, Rakhi believes that if a woman thinks she has a flair for this job, then this should be her world. Women possess natural qualities needed for procurement such as high EQ, multi-tasking, strong negotiation skills, the ability to build and maintain cohesive teams.
It’s a Right Time and Right Place to be in
Rakhi specifies that big data and analytics can bring about a new vision to procurement in India. The analytical capabilities can truly change the game, enabling procurement to unlock the real value of large amounts of structured and unstructured data and get to the next level of impact on enterprise-wide performance. Infact, now we are at the right time and place to witness the next-level procurement.
