As procurement executives are under pressure to perform in an era of globalisation and outsourced capabilities, many are pushing procurement in directions where new models and new ways of working are essential. This year, KPMG has released findings from its “25 in 25” research where 25 senior chief procurement officers and executives were asked to comment on what the world of procurement will look like in 2025.

Commenting on these findings, managing consultant at specialist recruitment company, Cast UK, Mark Nesbit points to the development of employee skill sets to incorporate a broad spectrum of capabilities as key to effective talent management and recruitment, which was noted as “central” in the KPMG report.
