Although you may feel that you invented “multi-tasking” and you do many duties that may not officially be recorded in your job description, just what is a purchasing and supply manager? Consider the definition provided by “Dilbert,” the hit-home parody of the modern business enterprise.
“The job of procurement isn’t as easy as it sounds.” It mostly involves preventing people from getting stuff they need to do their jobs. Most dinosaurs worked in procurement before they went into hiding. Many of them starved to death while waiting for a purchase order for edible vegetation. Others evolved into birds primarily in the penguin family. Those who survived carried on the tradition.” – Dilbert
