Building strong and productive internal allegiances can be a large challenge – but also a fantastic business opportunity. So, whether you’re a procurement professional looking to improve and promote the procurement function within your organisation, or a professional within another department looking to work closer with the procurement function – CPO Viewpoint – Procurement’s view of the findings report will help you to evaluate and identify which approach to take within your organisation to gain future success.
