Honesty Pays Off
Transparency and Visibility Too
How to Apply these to Procurement?
Many say the Election of 2016 is a matter of “choosing the lesser of two evils.” Neither candidate stands out as a highly ethical, moral or normal person. Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are caught up in the politics of Washington, the delusions of Hollywood or a combination of the two.
Voters would benefit from some honesty from the candidates. The recent presidential debate was a full-blown showcase of lies and deception. The standard of American politics has come to include some level of misrepresentation, but this election cycle has seen that standard explode. The American public is clamoring for some honesty from their candidates. Honesty is the foundation of how candidates demonstrate their value and how voters choose the best representation of their ideals. With all the backtracking, lies and cover-ups, it’s hard to establish that foundation.
Quintessentially, honesty shows that a candidate has nothing to hide.
It is a lifting of the veil on all their virtues and vices, presenting the whole picture to the voting masses. Honesty builds the character of a person. It highlights all qualities and presents a humble person willing to admit to her weaknesses and use his strengths for good. Trump and Clinton would become stronger candidates by introducing a little more honesty into their campaigns and their lives because of the visibility it creates.
Procurement and Honesty
Procurement and Visibility
At the heart of Best Practices
Honesty and visibility are also closely connected within an organization. When a company is operating ethically, honestly and openly, there is less chance for mistakes, scandal and devastating effects. Especially within procurement, visibility is critical to success. The Vroozi platform ensures that everyone in the company can see what everyone else is buying, shopping and negotiating.
Honesty is the road to visibility.
These qualities are ones of leading organizations and top leaders. American politics isn’t likely to see an increase in honesty and visibility, at least not in the next few months, but procurement can.
