Chief Procurement Officer – a New Spend Matters Website

We bring you tidings of another new website in the Spend Matters family! Hot on the heels of Spend México y America Latina (for all you Spanish speakers out there), the new site is simply called “Chief Procurement Officer”. It is run by our friends from Spend Matters and Metal Miner in the USA, and is aimed at – guess what – the Chief Procurement Officer and equivalent community.

Here is Jason Busch, Spend Matters founder, explaining the reasoning behind the site.

  • "Our published content volume continues to increase (we now have nearly 25,000 free site members on Spend Matters, in addition to Plus/PRO members). And, as our readership has been shifting increasingly toward practitioners, we’ve received feedback from procurement executives saying there is often simply too much content (and sometimes admittedly too much intelligence on technology providers). CPOs and their teams are obviously extremely busy, so this new CPO-dedicated site is a first step toward better role-based personalization of our content until we can implement our next generation of a content platform.
  • More CPO-level content on leadership, transformation, talent management, case studies, interviews, focused research, original insights and “next practices” that go beyond the usual CPO conference war stories. We will, of course, feature our own original research and content from across the full Azul Partners family of sites, but we’ll also try our best to cull and curate the best insights out there regardless of the source.
  • Readers like the new mobile-friendly, responsive website style that we’ve rolled out on Public Spend Matters Europe and that we plan to eventually roll out on more of our sites. On the CPO site, you’ll find 3 primary sections focused on research & insights, opinion, and yes, technology. We’ve also added a content aggregation stream that we’ll increasingly curate more outside content rigorously over time. And you can read it on your desktop (or tablet or smart phone). Finally!
  • Most important, while there are other CPO media publications such as CPO Agenda (which is now SupplyBusiness) and CPO-focused membership organizations like Procurement Leaders, there are not any executive-level sites that provide research, analysis, advice and truly objective analysis of procurement providers of all forms (a role only served in silos by expensive membership-based analyst/advisory firms in IT, BPO, consulting, etc.)"

It is a bit of a departure for us as it brings in content from other bloggers and media sources that we think will be of interest to CPOs, as well as Spend Matters original content and articles from our other sites. We hope you enjoy it and find it useful!
