Retail & CPG: Contract Intelligence from Source to Sale

A year of turbulence, a year of adaptability, a year of contrasting fortunes…. the resilience of the retail and CPG sectors has been fully put to the test. Over recent weeks, World Commerce & Contracting has interviewed executives from industry leaders to gather insight on the impact to supply relationships, the adequacy of technology and updates to contracting terms or policies. We are now supplementing that research with a survey to test wider sentiment and experiences from the Food & Drink, CPG & Retail industries.


Do contract standards reduce disputes?

Standards provide people and organizations with a basis for mutual understanding and can be used as tools to facilitate communication, measurement and commerce. 

In this study, we are examining the extent to which you currently use standards, their strengths and weaknesses and what types of standards you might welcome going forward. 


Maximizing the Value of Procurement - Practitioners

Much is written about the need for Procurement 'to add greater value'. Like all professions, we are undergoing a period of tremendous change, but where is it leading us? As practitioners, where do we see the greatest opportunities? And to free our time for new activities, what would we like to do less?

In this 8 minute survey, we are gathering input to identify how Procurement teams are currently perceived by their internal customers and how they are re-defining their workload to increase business contribution. As a participant, you will receive a personal copy of the consolidated report.
