World Commerce & Contracting recently released its highly anticipated global 2021 Benchmark Report. The report represents the most comprehensive survey of commercial and contracting professionals, featuring insights from a diverse group of contract professionals spanning buy-side, sell-side, and many industries.

Looking at responses from those in the Business Services, Outsourcing, and Consulting sector, the report found that it is ahead of the pack as an early adopter and significant investor in commercial and contracting capability.
