Our mission is to record experiences and to learn from them by recalling, sharing and discussing. Our vision is to make a hub of best practice sharing.


Our methodology is to focus on seemingly unimportant practical things from everyday work life. Hundreds of those little things come together and make biggest achievements happen.

FOR THE LOVE FOR OUR PROFESSION is a non-profit project. We provide full version of the content for free, unlike most consulting companies which publish abstract success stories on their website, and then ask for payment for concrete advice.


My name is Alper Ayhan. I am a procurement professional with experience in raw materials, packaging, and indirect categories.

I have seen the best and the worst while working at a large brewer in Russia, as the beer market boomed in 2000s only to decline sharply in 2010s. And this got me involved in a series of tough change projects like company merger, procurement reorganization, redesigning of processes, launching a shared service center, and procurement outsourcing.

I am currently working with Şişecam, which is a leading glass manufacturer in the region.

I spent many years at finance at the early period of my career and I hold Certified Public Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor qualifications.

I speak English, Russian and Turkish.

Project History started its journey with a humble beginning on 30 June 2017 as a personal blog about learnings from procurement work. The vision is boarding in other professionals, and making a hub of best practice sharing.
