Purchasing trends 2016

Just like last years Supply Value has conducted a study into the most important trends and priorities in procurement. In an international study, 322 purchasing professionals stated their expectations on how important a set of purchasing trends would become for their organizations in 2016.

In 2015 the expected most important trend was “value chain optimization”, but this year the purchasing professionals seek the opportunities for improvement internally: the most important purchasing trend this year came out to be: “better alignment with the business (strategy)”. This is a trend that we, at Supply Value, have received with enthusiasm: it is a theme that we always alert our customers on.
