What Others Say

“There are lots of purchasing books out there, but none of them show how to create a lasting and sustainable Procurement brand. Procurement Mojo®, at last, provides an effective and definitive guide. Sigi Osagie’s vast Procurement experience shines through. Insightful, illuminating and inspiring!”

Jonathan Patrick

Former European Procurement Director, Sony

Procurement Mojo® is extremely relevant and very well-written. Sigi Osagie hits the nail on the head; this book really resonates with my own experience. It convincingly lays out solutions to the difficulties and frustrations Procurement executives and practitioners face – engaging with stakeholders; trying to sell Procurement to the wider business; fighting for investment; and so on. Crucially, Sigi is absolutely right that ‘people’ are the number one factor. I loved the simplicity of the language and the sensible, clear-cut guidance – indispensable advice.”

Paul Farrow

VP Supply Management, Hilton Worldwide

“Sigi Osagie’s personal story of career success – from penniless, near-barefoot immigrant to global supply executive in fourteen years – is as inspiring as the knowledge he shares here. Procurement Mojo® is as much about Procurement success as individual success for purchasing people. Buy this book, read it, and you’ll be delighted!”

Procurement Mojo® gets to the core issues – Procurement talent, stakeholders, and Procurement’s profile in the wider business. This book is superbly-focussed and engaging.
