Podcast 061 Soft Skills Which Influence Supplier Performance (with Mylene Zanardi)

Future Procurement podcast

Soft skills or hard skills? What is more important for successful work in Procurement? Both are important!

Today we are discussing Soft Skills and personality of Procurement professional. I was happy to talk to Mylene Zanardi – Supply Project Manager at Plastic Omnium Auto Exterior.

Mylene has told us about her research on the Soft Skills in Procurement. This would be interesting for you if:

  • Your suppliers don’t want to collaborate and don’t want to deliver price development
  • You struggle to deliver your Procurement KPIs
  • You struggle to collaborate with your internal customers and stakeholders in the company
  • You deliver results, but you don’t understand what value are you delivering to a company…


We all definitely need to work on you Soft Skills! And this interview will give you some good ideas about the Soft skills needed for Procurement, Purchasing or Supply Chain professionals !


Enjoy this episode!!
