From the author: "For those of you who have children, you may be familiar with Richard Scarry’s book What Do People Do All Day. It’s a wonderful illustrated children’s book dealing with all of the various roles that people play in a small town. Of course, I didn't see any procurement people, and I was envisioning a small, dimly lit negotiations room where supplier people were, ahem, 'sharpening their pencils.' But, there was a firefighter, so perhaps that is close enough."

Anyone in procurement can surmise what a CPO does. But what should they be doing that they may not be today?
