Deloitte’s 10th Annual Global Chief Procurement Officer Survey 2021: CPOs Harness Agility to Deliver and Protect Value Despite Uncertainty in the Wake of COVID-19
Deloitte
Deloitte

Key takeaways

  • The chief procurement officer (CPO) is playing an increasingly complex, integrated and strategic role in the C-suite in light of the coronavirus pandemic and corresponding supply chain disruptions.
  • CPOs identified “driving operational efficiency” as their top priority for the first time in the survey’s 10-year history, narrowly unseating “reducing costs” as the front runner.
  • Procurement “agility masters” outperform their peers on all the major performance metrics. These high performers are capitalizing on new technologies and flexible operating models to adapt to the turbulent marketplace and thrive in the next normal.
