Developing procurement leaders
The mission of the Procurement Development Program (PDP) is to enhance our procurement leadership base by recruiting entry-level associates who strive to become procurement leaders. Since 2006, we have sought to develop PDP associates who want a career in procurement and who demonstrate the potential for growth and leadership in other supply chain and operations areas.
Associates move to a different commodity or process team and assume responsibility for a specific area of spend to manage via procurement, or lead a key process implementation. They utilize skills and knowledge developed early on, and continue to build a capability in procurement.
