Memorial Day in the United States has different meaning for different people. For many, it is a weekend to reflect on the sacrifices made by the men and women of our armed forces in defense of our liberties and national interests and pay our respects. For others, it is a chance to “hit pause” on our hectic lives and enjoy some down time with family and friends. It also happens to be the unofficial start of the summer, especially here in New England (although you wouldn’t know it judging by the weather).
Whatever Memorial Day means to you and however you choose to mark it, we at Ardent Partners invite you to kick back with this year’s annual CPO Rising research report, CPO Rising 2017: Tools of the Trade, written by our Chief Research Officer, Andrew Bartolini.
The report is part of an ongoing dialogue that Andrew and the analyst team at Ardent Partners have had with Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) and other procurement leaders for more than a decade (he began writing a version of this report in 2006). Get up to speed on procurement benchmarks and industry best practices by downloading this report with our compliments (click here).
Finally, we invite you to spend two minutes watching the video recap of last year’s CPO Rising 2016 Summit.
Mark your calendars for November 8 & 9 for the CPO Rising 2017 Summit and watch for big announcements about the event throughout the month of June.
