In our latest 2015 Trend Report, we surveyed CPOs around the world to understand their strategic intentions for the next twelve months. Will procurement headcount increase or not? And, what about procurement technology, and risk management?

We rightly celebrate examples of high ethical standards in procurement and supply chain and rightly criticize apparent lack of such standards as well. There is plenty to celebrate today, but unfortunately also plenty to criticize.

A common question: will auditing the supply chain reveal issues that will prove costly and damaging? Is it best to leave as is until an issue manifests? If the last question sounds familiar then it’s definitely time to re-evaluate your approach.

Procurement should consider, for a moment, how much innovation is created among smaller businesses, regardless of whether they are a supplier to your business or not. Innovation is just as likely to be found in the basement of a PhD graduate’s apartment, or the laboratory of a university, or within a micro start up which is struggling to stay afloat as it is in the labs of a multinational.

Customers will look to take a more holistic approach to procurement with tightly integrated spend management solutions that make the function more strategic. Expectations for greater transparency and control will rise as customers become more sophisticated in the use of analytics for predictive and proactive spend control.
