Ten Steps to Unlock the Power of Procurement
The world has moved beyond conventional procurement where reactive, scattered procurement teams are narrowly focused on spend management, savings and transaction management. It’s time to move to ‘Unlocked Procurement’ that promotes collaboration, innovation and brings sustainable value to those strategic suppliers that enhance your revenue and profitability.
Unlock More Procurement Value
Many Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) and their departments currently find themselves at a crossroads, struggling to maintain their momentum while the speed and complexity of their businesses continue to accelerate. While the foundation of procurement’s future will be built upon the past, the strategies and approaches that drive new successes will be markedly different. This report looks at the transformative strategies that will unlock procurement’s next wave of value.
The Financial CPO
Earnings-per-share and return on invested capital are the type of metric that keep CEOs and investors motivated, and procurement, like all business units, must optimise their performance. But without informed use of modern sourcing techniques and technology, from digital dashboards to spend analysis, this will remain a pipe dream. The Financial CPO will explore the techniques that top organisations are using in order to understand what separates the leaders from the laggards.

Creating Effective Supplier Scorecards

Changing Roles of the Procurement Leader: The Analytical CPO
The business world constantly changes, so procurement leaders have to change with it. While much of the recent focus has been on the need for procurement professionals to develop strong interpersonal skills, we’ve been observing another trend that is driving somewhat different needs.
Top Ten Things To Do in 2013 To Control Costs
Costs are rising and will likely continue to do so. There are many reasons for this, some obvious, some less so. Regardless of the reasons, it’s likely that many organizations have to act now before it’s too late, as the chances of hyperinflation are always higher after a prolonged period of stable inflation. In this paper, we will discuss the top 7 reasons that costs are rising, outline the top 7 weaknesses in an average organization that exposes them to market risk, and the top 10 things an
Keeping Score: Procurement Performance and Strategies for Success
This independent research study seeks to present a comprehensive industry-wide view into what is happening in the world of procurement today by drawing on the experience, performance, and perspective of more than 270 Chief Procurement Officers and other procurement executives.
Five Reasons Why Projects Fail (and how to prevent them)
Chief procurement officers have been attempting to shift procurement from a tactical, execution-based function to a strategic business driver for years.
Easier said than done.
For most procurement teams, the mandate is more than a shift, it’s a transformation. And the path to success is littered with roadblocks.
Contract Management – Part One
This paper is the first in a short series of three which will look at the business case for organisations to invest in Contract Management resource, tools and technology.
We are defining Contract Management as activities post-contract award that are connected with the delivery of the goods, services or works defined in the contract.
