The CPO Rising 2017: Tools of the Trade webinar will present the latest research findings revealed in Ardent Partners' most recent CPO Rising report, the annual benchmark report for procurement professionals, who want to have their fingers on the latest pulse of our industry. This twelfth annual report is part of an ongoing dialogue that the analyst firm has had with global Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) and other procurement leaders.
Based on the perspectives and intentions of 313 CPOs and other procurement executives, webinar attendees will learn about the true state of procurement globally, while getting practitioner insights, as Determine and Ardent Partners are joined by the CPO of VSP Global, a leading vision care insurance company.
“Ardent Partners has been doing these reports for a dozen years, and their content has become required reading. CPO Rising 2017: Tools of the Trade is also the first version to really focus on the role of technology, where many of the findings address exactly what Determine does best on the Determine Cloud Platform. Moreover, we're really excited to do this webinar because of the diversity of knowledge the panel brings to the event“
