Description: "This study will examine the increasingly strategic role procurement is playing in enterprise strategies and operations - from product innovation to build-versus-buy decisions to globalization and market expansion. The study will identify leading pressures and challenges procurement executives are facing in this new role. Finally the study will determine the leading strategies and investments CPOs and VPs of Procurement are employing to drive continuous improvements and value to the enterprise."
