CPO Rising - Keeping ScoreEarlier this week, Ardent Partners published its annual market research report focused on the state of procurement and the Chief Procurement Officer.

The report is called CPO Rising: Keeping Score and it represents the web-based survey responses of 267 CPO’s and other procurement and business leaders as well as direct 30-60 minute interviews with more than 25 CPO’s and procurement leaders (all of whom took the survey) and six former CPO’s who have moved into larger operational roles.
These participants shared their strategies and intentions, as well as their operational and performance results to help us define Best-in-Class procurement performance and understand what levers the leading groups pull to obtain their advantage.
