The purpose of this study was to examine the two ways that procurement executives are involved in career development: managing their own careers and providing career development opportunities to their team members. Then, the authors intended to analyze and share the information with members of the procurement leadership community so that those leaders could benchmark their own activities and, if necessary, adjust their approaches for higher degrees of success.

This whitepaper answers five primary questions:

1. What is the route to procurement leadership?
2. What is next for procurement leaders?
3. What is a leader’s role in team members’ growth?
4. Is top talent being retained effectively?
5. Is procurement a breeding ground for talent?
