Current state analysis and transformation opportunity assessment

Transforming your supply management operations and developing a successful procurement strategy is much like reading a map. To know how to get to your desired location or end-state, you have to first understand where you currently stand. Our tailored approach to Procurement Transformation begins with a detailed evaluation of your existing supply management operations. Our Procurement Transformation advisers take a holistic look at your people, processes, technology, and metrics; closely reviewing stakeholder feedback, purchase orders and vendor contracts, established performance metrics, supplier relationships, and more; all with the goal of identifying opportunities for improvement and creating an effective procurement strategy for your organization.

Putting to use decades of spend management experience and proprietary benchmark data, our procurement transformation experts then compare your existing procurement operations against industry best practices, along with companies of similar profiles. The result? Our procurement transformation advisers deliver a clear report detailing the strengths and weaknesses of your existing Procurement practices within your Strategic Sourcing and Procurement department, along with recommendations for achieving better-operating efficiency, enhancing human capital management, and reducing costs.
