That Led Zeppelin song keeps resonating in my head when I think about the economic conditions that drive a Buyer’s Market vs a Seller’s Market.
Being in the Procurement profession for a significant portion of my career, I’ve seen a number of both – relishing in the good times. Buy-downs, Savings and Value-Added Reports were relatively easy and the performance rewards, well . . . “Life was good”!
During the bad times, however, well we all know what that’s like – Tums, Ambien and/or the additional Martini at (not so) Happy Hour.
