Modern procurement extends well beyond the realm of cost reduction in an environment where the ability to move quickly and effectively is vital.
Effective procurement teams deliver against company objectives. Not procurement objectives.
These teams truly support the rest of the business through a deep understanding of business needs. They work to optimise the cost base and the performance across the whole value chain.
Being able to influence the business on how to use all available procurement levers, not just aggregation and tendering, is critical to drive the next wave of procurement savings and benefits for your business.
