Why procurement matters

The procurement function has an increasingly important role to play in driving improvement to an organisation’s bottom line and delivering sustained operational impact.

With external expenditure accounting for up to 70% of an organisation’s costs, it is essential that the procurement capability of an organisation is high-performance.

Very simply, Procurement Excellence delivers competitive advantage.

We work with clients to ensure that strategic procurement is at the forefront of the transformational roadmap, and that procurement functions have the necessary tools and processes to deliver long-term sustainable change.

We offer a range of services starting with a Procurement Function Diagnostic to benchmark your organisation’s current procurement performance, with a range of hands-on Transformation support to develop your function, building the six enablers of procurement excellence; embedding high-performance with specific focus on Procurement Operating Model, people & skills through Training & Development, the core procurement processes of Strategic Sourcing, Category Management and Supplier Relationship Management.
