Conceptually there are three components to achieving procurement driven business performance improvement.
Cost control and reduction is certainly important but it is often given greater emphasis from a management perspective than the other two less visible components, process improvement and supplier leadership, that can deliver even better performance results.
We are happy to dive in wherever you need us but no matter what your specific requirements maybe as part of any prospective engagement we offer an initial no charge Situation Analysis.
In this consultation we analyse your current situation benchmarked against best practice and a roadmap of the options and activities that could be undertaken to improve your results.
Following initial discussions, the Situation Analysis is how we start most engagements.
The Situation Analysis workshop, which typically runs for 3 hours, commences with an educational session on cutting edge procurement practices that drive real savings and marked supplier performance improvements. We’ll also discuss in broad terms projects we’ve undertaken with organisations similar to yours and how we have helped them achieve their goals.
We will then perform a three step diagnosis:
On completion, we will provide you with a high-level 3-4-page Situation Analysis (we all love brevity) that aligns procurement’s strategic direction with your overall business strategy. It will outline the short and long-term steps you need to take to ensure your procurement function is best practice and the right fit for your organisation now and into the future.
