Interview: From crisis to positive growth – 2021 procurement trends

Tim Burt

CPOs have played a critical role in guiding businesses through the Covid-19 crisis, creating significant opportunities for the year ahead

Everything has changed in 2020. Trends that had been slowly shaping the function and the wider world – digitalisation, data analytics, geopolitical risk, sustainability, diversity – all accelerated, driven by the pandemic, the threat of an economic slowdown and global protests over the right to equality.

In this video we interview Tim Burt, author of the ‘Trends Report 2021: From crisis to positive growth’ who talks about those trends and the implications for the procurement function moving forward.

You will hear:

  • A summary of the five key trends.
  • Some insight on what those trends mean.
  • How the function can seize opportunities and support the business in the future.
