New CPO resources and insights hub

Starting a new role as a Chief Procurement Officer can be an exciting yet challenging experience. The CPO is expected to be a real change agent in the business, driving success at speed, with innovative ideas and rapid cost savings. Achieving this, while trying to build a personal brand, as well as trusted relationships with key business stakeholders is a testing process that requires meticulous planning.

However, the pressure to make an immediate impact is prevalent and it can be difficult to find a good place to start. The first three months can either make or break a new CPO, making it crucial to have an action plan in place from day one. 

To support and guide you on your new journey, we have developed a range of insightful content to help you build a platform for success. From Q&As with experienced CPOs to a comprehensive checklist, we endeavour to equip you with valuable material to help you achieve successful procurement, immediate cost savings and leave a lasting mark on the business.

A key enabler of success is to pull together cross-functional teams to cocreate a strategy with the business, rather than to the business.
