The pathway to productivity and performance

The Procurement function has a fundamental mandate in organisations, and that is “to create and leverage value from the supply chain”. We can depict this mandate in a simple graphic as follows:

So the Procurement function has enormous potential to create significant value for the organisation, depending on how the aggregation of the variables represented by the above equation are manipulated. This however requires a logical balance in emphasis between the various practices domains within procurement, matched by commensurate capabilities viz. the Procurement function’s practices and competencies. There also needs to be an unequivocal appreciation at senior organisational levels as to the potential Procurement holds in order to unleash the latent potential in the supply chain.

In certain instances, targeted development and improvement initiatives are required to take Procurement ‘to the next level’. With decades of experience in this field, and innovative tools, we are able to assist you discover and/or confirm where such initiatives would deliver greatest value, and then to guide you through the transition execution process towards specific goals and objectives in a measurable manner.
