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

@Hailey - Examples are important - Our study showed that more than half of the highest performing CPOs have leveraged suppliers to actually help co-develop new technologies for their business. I think this really demonstrates a deep understanding of the business needs and the unique relationship that procurement has with their partners. Overall, the study showed that 92 percent of highest performing procurement officers feel they can add value to external stakeholder relationships as opposed to 68 percent of underperformers, so this is a critical shift that procurement organizations must take in order to help their businesses stay competitive and bring more innovation to the table. I hope that helps.
