Procurement Executives agree that cost reduction remains the top most priority to support growth of business amidst uncertain markets. There is a strong requirement for leadership to initiate cost competiveness yet there is a significant talent gap. In terms of people, skills and capability is still the main barrier. There is consensus among executives that talent and capability building needs a stronger focus to drive procurement performance.*

Does your team have a talent gap to execute your strategy in delivering cost efficiencies?
