Welcome to the second edition of FP Viewpoint. 

Multi media on Procurement Transformation: In this edition we are very pleased to feature a video interview with Ken Friis VP and CPO, Corporate Sourcing at Lundbeck. Plenty of incisive experiences are shared by Ken – a natural in front of the camera!

Continuing with the pharma leaders theme, Jon Hughes highlights some of the macro level changes being responded to by pace setters in pharma procurement in this month’s CPO Communiqué.

Hitting the numbers: Finally, we are working with several clients that wanted help to hit 2012 savings targets. We have summarised recommendations for action in our Insight Guide.

Hopefully, you find the content practical and helpful. If you have any questions about the coverage or Future Purchasing in general, please just drop me a line.
