Contrary to popular belief, chief finance and chief procurement officers have more in common than they think. Individually, they have a strong passion for savings (read: “do we need to spend money?”). They are also usually risk adverse.
Despite being similar in many ways, the relationship between finance and procurement is often disjointed and not marching to the same beat. This inhibits companies from achieving maximum business performance, especially problematic in an economic environment that requires swift response to ever changing threats and opportunities.
