Re: Live Chat 01/15: CPOs Re-Shape Their Business Roles

To your first question Hailey - Traditionally procurement has been seen more as the guardians of corporate spending. They are the watchdogs of sorts that ensure costs are under control. But increasingly CPOs are expanding their remit to bring more strategic value to the business and into the c-suite. Top procurement leaders are now more in tune with the bigger picture to help drive innovation, grow revenues and expand competitive advantage. They aren't just concerned with the success of their procurement function - they are more focused on the success of the business as a whole. It's a major change in mindset that's giving CPOs a bigger seat at the executive table.
