How a CPO Can Take Advantage of Technology – Lessons from a CIO Kaitlyn McAvoy - March 20, 2015 8:38 AM | Categories: Procurement Commentary, Procurement Strategy & Planning, Technology | Tags: L2, Process and Best Practice This week on Chief Procurement Officer, Pierre Mitchell, chief research officer, continued his series What CPO’s Can Learn From Facebook’s CIO. The series was based of an interview The Wall Street Journal held with Facebook CIO Timothy Campos. What lessons could a chief information officer teach procurement? Pierre breaks it down. Specifically this week, we published 2 new articles in the series. One, titled Predictive Procurement Technology – What CPO’s Can Learn From Facebook’s CIO, focused on how CPOs can apply predictive analysis "anywhere major spend occurs." But predictive tools can be helpful for other areas, too, including talent management. The lesson here: applying smart technology to procurement only makes the organization smarter. Part 4, and the final article in the series, Using Automated Technology More Broadly in Procurement, talked about other ways procurement can benefit from automated tools. Pierre offers tips on how and where procurement can take advantage of this technology.
