CPO Study 2015

ProcureCon's most senior level report, the 2015 CPO study contains insights and case studies from leaders in the procurement community, covering leading topics which include:

  • Deepening relationships with internal stakeholders
  • Applying the latest in technology
  • Identifying the next generation of procurement talent
  • The latest sources of disruption around the role

Helming a movement away from a traditional back office role, the CPO is rapidly becoming a trusted and integral member of the C-Suite within forward thinking businesses. Procurement, having proven the ability to create savings, is now looking to go further towards unlocking value. This includes looking at categories of indirect spend that may not have been scrutinized before, working more closely with other business leaders, as well as participating in discussions related to the general direction of the business.

Success Story

It takes a progressive manager to push the organization to look at indirect spend and managing it in a different way - but once you see it, then you realize the opportunity.

SDI at Work

Data standardization is part of Google’s new initiative to help people find relevant datasets.  With a recent study from Data Science Central, it’s estimated that data scientists spend 60% of their time preparing data for analysis, rather than performing the analysis itself.  Therefore, the goal of this schema is to drive standardization so that more time can be spent analyzing it.
