For most firms, supply chains now are global and complex. Whilst there have been significant benefits from this, there is also risk – as well as significant cost associated with managing them. Taking control of the supply chains that support your business requires an integrated procurement function that acts with intelligence and insight. The opportunity is there to transform your procurement function into a valuable asset that promotes growth throughout the wider business.

Faced with empowered customers, emerging technologies, severe periodic disruption and a battle for skills, CPOs face important questions:

  • Can I be a better partner to my business?
  • How can we make self-service the norm for users and suppliers?
  • How can procurement leverage big data to be intuitive and insightful?
  • How can procurement use external insights, tools and technologies to drive better outcomes?
  • What is the best way to make change happen smoothly?
