The survey was conducted among 300 procurement practitioners, over 75% of them being senior level executives from $2 billion plus companies in North America.
The report will help procurement executives to look beyond the current snapshots into emerging trends as enterprise strategic procurement functions continue to evolve and become mature. It delves into:
