How a CPO Can Take Advantage of Technology – Lessons from a CIO


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 CIOfocused 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 Procurementtalked about other ways procurement can benefit from automated tools. Pierre offers tips on how and where procurement can take advantage of this technology.
