“Architecting” an Improved Procurement Capability to Enable Business Success
Today’s CPOs need to enable success as it’s defined by the business — while doing more with less. To succeed, CPOs must become more of an “architect” of procurement capabilities that leverage not only their own staffs, but also a growing list of such supporting options as BPO, GPOs, GBSs, open buying and digital. Beyond “what,” they must also decide “where” to execute activity on a global, regional and local basis. In this session, Chris Sawchuk will highlight insights from Hackett Group research and moderate a panel of procurement executives who will share experiences and perspectives into this “architecture” concept.
