Empowering procurement to
achieve Platformance.

Ardent Partners | CPO Rising 2017

Procurement has shifting priorities; Learn what competencies and capabilities are required to become – and stay – best in class.

What’s on the minds of CPOs both shapes, and is shaped by, the state of procurement. One thing is for sure, it’s a changing landscape that reflects the dynamic nature of the business. For twelve years now, Ardent Partners has been engaged in an ongoing conversation with CPOs and procurement leaders around the world. This year’s report, CPO Rising 2017: Tools of the Trade, shares the invaluable insights of those conversations.

And together, we shared the most important highlights in a webinar. It will give you a comprehensive view into what is happening in the world of procurement and discover the industry’s hot trends and key findings. Highlights include:

  • The experience, performance, perspective and intentions of 313 procurement execs
  • Enterprise and procurement goals, and the strategies they’re adopting to get there
  • Business processes that CPOs are implementing to drive performance to the next level
  • Technology enablers – “the tools of the trade” – teams are leveraging now and plan to adopt in the years ahead
  • How best-in-class organizations lead the way in process and technology adoption

If you want to know what’s on the minds of other leading CPOs, check out this on-demand webinar with Ardent Partners and VSP Global.
