Which one of the four traits is the most important to be an effective procurement professional?

Posted on September 9, 2021


According to Deloitte‘s 2021 CPO Survey, procurement “isn’t just about cost savings and operational efficiency anymore.”

Given that procurement leaders have had to “change strategies in an instant to adapt to the next normal” in our LinkedIn Polls, we asked, “Which one of the following character traits is the most important for a procurement professional to possess in this brave new world and why?”

While we will be releasing a paper co-sponsored by Procurement Foundry and Sourcing Solved early next month, in which we will delve into the reasons behind the responses, here are the results. Note that the first poll with 1,015 votes was from the general, overall procurement industry, while the 276 votes second poll reflects the opinions of CPOs who follow the CPO ARENA podcast.

Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below, and tell us why you agree or disagree with the results.
