Compelling Agenda Set for CPO Rising 2016

The modern procurement department and its leader, the CPO, find themselves facing a host of challenges inherent in the globalized economy; these obstacles include dwindling internal resources, tightening supply chains, and increased worldwide supply risk due to global events. Part and parcel of managing an effective procurement team is learning best practices from industry leaders and how to apply those lessons to enterprise operations.

When it comes to the top strategies to help procurement ascend to the next level of performance, CPOs believe that being there earlier in the engagement on sourcing opportunities is the single largest opportunity. Getting involved sooner on a sourcing project can make the difference between acting as an active project leader or as a simple order-taker. It is because of this and many other reasons that sourcing will be a prominently featured topic at the CPO Rising 2016 executive summit to be held March 29 and 30, 2016, in Boston.

The executive summit will also include other topics of interest to procurement professionals, including contract management and collaborative procurement. Each breakout session, keynote, and panel discussion will be built with an aim to give procurement professionals actionable lessons and information they can use to push their organization’s procurement function to a higher level of performance. Key topics will include:

  • Procurement-led Innovation
  • The Expanding Role of the CPO
  • Procurement Agility in the Age of Innovation
  • The Pillars of Strategic Sourcing Success
  • P2P Excellence and Expansion
  • The Do’s and Don’ts of Collaboration
  • Globalization & Supply Risk
  • Contingent Workforce Management
  • Complex Spend Management
  • Procurement Performance Measurement
