[Research Study] Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Innovative Solutions and Strategies for Better Procurement Contracts.

This new report from Ardent Partners is based on a survey of 318 Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) and other procurement leaders from across the country. It examines the agile and innovative strategies, processes, and tools that CPOs and other business leaders can use particularly within the contract management process to offset resource constraints and elevate enterprise performance to the next level.
See survey results for the following topics:
  • How business leaders are struggling to keep pace with the ever-changing demands of the market.
  • How innovation rules the day: newer, more advanced products, and shorter development timelines mean that enterprises, in general, and procurement teams, in particular, need to be agile. 
  • What procurement leadership plans to do to meet changing needs, even with strapped resources.
Although worldwide economic conditions are more favorable today than they were a half decade ago, resource-strapped CPOs and other supply management leaders remain pressed to drive greater value, faster and more effectively, through the contracting and procurement processes¬ in effect, to constantly do better with static resources. This report explores how. 
Ardent Partners is a Boston-based research and advisory firm focused on defining and advancing the supply management strategies, processes, and technologies that drive business value and accelerate organizational transformation within the enterprise.
