What is a MVP? MVP is an abbreviation for Most Valuable Player: the man or woman judged to be the outstanding player in a sport during a particular season or championship, according to dictionary.com. So it follows that a procurement MVP is the man/woman judged to be the outstanding procurement professional, and to simplify, we’ll take the season and championship out of the equation and substitute department. In other words: A Procurement MVP is the man/woman judged to be the outstanding procurement professional within their department.
How do you become an MVP? Efficiency? Competency? Experience? Education? Well, we’ll leave that up to you to decide.
