Optimising your supply base to deliver against your current and evolving business needs. Drive rationalisation and segmentation of your supply base in to strategic, core and operational with appropriate robust supplier management processes, governance and integrated digital performance reporting.
Third party expenditure can account for up to 60-70% of operating expense and is therefore critical to the overall financial performance of the organisation. Procurement should be driving not just the robust management, reduction and appropriate allocation/ variablisation of operating cost, but also helping to drive incremental revenue growth opportunities.
Every Procurement function struggles with credibility in reporting of cost reduction and reconciliation with P&L and balance sheet impact. We work with you to create robust and integrated financial processes and governance that align with the CFO and business units across budgeting and business planning processes.
Investing in your people and capabilities is a critical enabler for sustainable performance. We will support you across capability assessment (function and individuals), identify gaps and solutions to solve across areas, including recruitment, training, best practice sharing, coaching and mentoring (inside and outside of the organisation).
Suppliers are potentially the greatest source of innovation and ideation to drive your company performance and growth and yet are rarely engaged appropriately across the organisation. Establish a structured and incentivised approach across your organisation, your suppliers and potentially collaboratively across their broader client base.
