Reviews and comments

"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!"

Ray Packe, Former Head of Global Purchasing, Marconi PLC

"True Procurement success is not about category management, e-sourcing and so on; it’s about building foundational capability, and Sigi Osagie explains this in a powerfully persuasive manner. Procurement Mojo underscores the importance of the single most critical factor in creating sustainable success – people. This is an invaluable guide for Procurement professionals and senior executives who want more from their Procurement."

Allan Stamper, Chief Executive, Water Division, Halma plc.

"What purchasing people need most is good practical guidance to tackle the problems they routinely face in the job. Procurement Mojo provides it. Sigi Osagie highlights the true essence of successful Procurement in simplified language, and offers informed advice on building a Procurement brand, which all purchasing people will get tremendous benefit from."

David Bradley, Supply Chain Director, Moog Tritech

"I had the pleasure of working with Sigi on improving our Procurement… and he did more than educate me – he brought out a passion that I had lost. He has inspired me to take my Procurement function to a different level and drive greater profitability for the company. "

Natalie Bouwer, Procurement Manager, David Brown Gear Systems, South Africa

"…[Sigi] has been instrumental in aligning our Procurement function to Gatwick’s new priorities, and instigated a number of developments to improve our supply base and procurement capability… [he] brings clarity, direction and focus to organisational development issues and supply management challenges..., and is able to articulate ideas effectively and secure stakeholder alignment."

Scott Stanley, COO, Gatwick Airport

"A much-needed book that articulates the fundamentals of creating Procurement success. Procurement Mojo brilliantly outlines pragmatic answers to the key problems of building a credible Procurement brand and a capability to match. A great book with sound examples, shrewd approaches and loads of smart advice. Read it!"

James Cowley, Procurement and Supply Chain Director, Balfour Beatty Services

"Procurement Mojo addresses the real concerns purchasing people grapple with; not least, improving capability, raising Procurement’s profile and nurturing a great Procurement brand. Valuable insights and lots of pragmatic techniques. You must read it if you really want to boost your Procurement ability."

Stephen Faley, Global Director, Procurement & Supply Chain Management, David Brown Gear Systems

"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. With stories from his own remarkable career, Sigi Osagie pulls together the secrets of success in Procurement. This book should be compulsory reading for all Procurement professionals and senior executives responsible for purchasing."

Chris Efstathiou, Vice President of Supply Chain, Kiva Systems

"This is a superb book – a ‘must read’ for all Procurement people!
