The Deloitte CPO Global Survey report presents the findings from our 2013 survey, comprising of over 180 responses across 18 countries. The participants have a combined turnover of US$2.7 trillion across the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia, and cover all major industry groups.
The Survey continues to be a benchmark indicator of Procurement sentiment, tracking key indictors such as CPOs perception of cost, supply market and price volatility. This year we have found CPOs were the most optimistic they have been since the Survey began in 2011. Uncertainty has also decreased, suggesting confidence is on the up. This represents perhaps a shift in priorities; new product development, geographic expansion and M&A have all increased, now almost equal with cost reduction which remains the number one focus of respondents.
James Gregson, Head of Sourcing & Procurement in the UK, introduces the latest Deloitte Global CPO Survey.
