Masterclass - Chicago, March 27, 2012

Benefiting from a crisis – making the most of the CPO’s toolkit

Despite this, it’s a climate in which procurement executives can also make a huge impact – as long as they make use of the various tools at their disposal.

This Masterclass will focus on the key levers available to CPOs during these difficult times and how some leading organizations are using them to their advantage.
