TRANSFORM YOUR THINKING, LEAD WITH PURPOSE

Program Overview

Leaders Edge is a transformative leadership development program for mid-senior level procurement professionals. This year, we kick-off our 3rd cohort group for a unique learning experience designed specifically to meet your needs, to close the leadership gap and to prepare the future leaders of our profession.

Program Overview

The core competencies public procurement leaders need to succeed form the foundation of the Leaders Edge program. It is critical that public procurement leaders are part of their organization’s strategic planning team, providing expertise and value to help the overall effectiveness of any public entity. Leaders Edge provides participants the blueprint to excel in three key areas:
