Ardent Partners Announces CPO Rising 2016
This March, a select group of Chief Procurement Officers and other business leaders will come together at the Harvard Club in Boston for CPO Rising 2016, an executive symposium brought to you by Ardent Partners.
This exclusive event promises valuable networking opportunities and the interactive exchange of ideas for Chief Procurement Officers and other business executives. Attendees can expect to return home with a collection of new and innovative ideas and strategies that will help improve the performance of their organizations and increase the impact that their teams will have on business results.
“The accelerating speed and complexity of business has placed procurement and its leader, the Chief Procurement Officer (“CPO”), in the crucible of business operations, relationships, and results. Procurement departments, their operations, culture, and systems, the way in which they transform knowledge into strategies and those strategies into performance, must all keep pace.” said Andrew Bartolini, Ardent Partners’ Chief Research Officer. “We are excited to launch our inaugural event this fall in Boston to help CPOs better understand what they can do increase their relevance, engagement, and results.”
From keynote presentations to CPO panel discussions, case studies, and breakout sessions, the unparalleled speaker panel will highlight procurement-led innovation within the enterprise and across the supply chain and present key topics such as:
- Procurement-led Innovation
- The Agility Agenda
- The Pillars of Strategic Sourcing Success
- P2P Excellence and Expansion
- Internal & External Collaboration
- Globalization & Supply Risk
- Contingent Workforce Management
- Complex Spend Management
- Procurement Performance Measurement
In the days ahead, we will begin announcing our prominent roster of speakers. Some speaking slots are still open, so if you’d like to nominate someone or yourself, please contact us.
