  4. 4. Chief Procurement Officer Challenges • Procurement initiatives of the 90s and early 2000s did not deliver the level of cost competitiveness promised • Companies switched to outsourcing to deliver on those promises • Focus back on Internal Purchasing Operations to Deliver Savings • CPOs report Attempts to Reduce Cost Further Challenged by: – New technology adoptions, – Cycles of centralization and decentralization, – Employee empowerment, – A plethora of self serving strategies and analyses offered by consultants – Limited pool of Purchasing Professionals that can always deliver results regardless of limitations Technology Adoption for Purchasing stands out across industries as a requirement to meet and sustain performance expectations Bill Kohnen Discussion Note Aug 2014
  5. 5. Innovative Purchasing Tools Into the Majority in 2015 –Why? • CPOs need tools • Innovators tools more stable and generally more acceptance of Software as a Service Cloud Solutions • Ironically introduction of legacy ERP Vendors cloud products provides credibility even if their products remain expensive and not fully integrated and optimized. Some CPOs will have to “settle” for these tools. • Early Majority results will set benchmarks that even the “establishment consultant and legacy ERP players “will not be able to contain • Purchasing Teams and organizations using the innovative tools will like them and not accept legacy systems or approach's.
