How Johnson & Johnson fills its procurement talent pipeline:
When Johnson & Johnson looks for procurement talent, it doesn’t need to go far. It looks at the talent it grew in house, which J&J has been doing for the last 12 years. That’s because, in 2008, it launched the Procurement Leadership Development Program (PLDP), which so far has trained 119 employees.
Today’s procurement professionals need a gamut of skills as the role is no longer in that back office, including demand management insights, critical thinking, social and digital skill.
