Watch our video: Top three concerns keeping procurement leaders awake at night

At a recent ProcureCon Indirect Connect virtual conference, Michael van Keulen, Chief Procurement Officer at Coupa, and Ryan Flynn, Principal and Third-Party Risk Management lead at Deloitte Consulting, took a close look at the trends, challenges, and opportunities that are top of mind for procurement leaders.

What are the critical issues procurement leaders are facing?

Many procurement leaders are still struggling to plan and strategize for 2021 and beyond, knowing that there are still many questions about what this year may bring. In our 2021 Deloitte Global Chief Procurement Officer Survey, we asked CPOs about the critical issues that are keeping them up at night. Based on the report’s results, we found three main areas of concern: cost reduction, risk management, and talent development.

The survey, which has served as the global benchmark research for procurement leaders worldwide, also discussed the importance of value generation and improved supply chain resiliency in the face of complexity, improving process agility to stay tightly aligned with stakeholders and suppliers, and leveraging next-generation operating models and platforms that harness talent and intelligence.
