I help organizations, service providers and individuals tackle their most pressing procurement related challenges to help elevate the value that our profession can deliver.
What does that mean? Well, it means different things to different companies:
Do you want to benefit from the value strategic procurement can deliver? It means building alignment between procurement and the c-suite, and implementing strategic governance programs that drive performance and increase the accountability of all participants.
Do you need to become more agile? It means building a low-cost, hybrid in-house and outsourced procurement delivery models which provides access to the subject matter expertise and technology that you need, on-demand.
Do you have difficulty in inspiring your procurement teams to invest in their own self development? It means bringing the principles of the Art of Procurement to your procurement learning and development program to increase engagement and results.
Concerned about cost? It means building the capabilities and infrastructure you need that enables you to bring spend under management, and manage that spend in a strategic way.
Want to better manage risk? It means integrating the identification, mitigation and management of supplier related risks into the procurement and sourcing process.
Focused on growth? It means developing true two-way collaborative relationships with the key suppliers that will be central to your organizational growth plans.
Concerned about your career? It means building a plan to develop your own capabilities to ensure you are best placed to take advantage of the opportunities that the evolution of procurement with bring rather than being left behind.
Let’s talk to discuss how I can help you or your company today.
I have been fortunate to work across multiple industries, and as a practitioner and service provider for a number of respected organizations including Accenture, Pfizer, Ford / Visteon, Ally Financial, Procurian and Chiquita (plus others I cannot name for confidentiality reasons!). I also have deep experience in both Direct Material and Indirect procurement.
Representative assignments include:
These build upon my experience as both a client and service provider of outsourced procurement services:
In my experience, the writing is on the wall for most outsourced procurement programs from the day the contract is signed. With this in mind, I built ProcureScore – an assessment for companies to take before they embark on the journey of using third parties as part of their procurement delivery model.
ProcureScore combines data driven algorithms and experience based insights to assess an organizations readiness for procurement outsourcing, covering 8 specific risk factors. For more information, go to procurescore.com.
Once a procurement outsourcing contract has been signed, the hard work is only just beginning? But how do you determine the health of your program, and the likelihood that it will generate the ROI that you expect over the length of the contract?
ProcureCheck assesses the health of your program by measuring your current status against 15 critical success factors. It recommends the actions that you should take to maximize your long term program ROI of your outsourced program. For more information, visit procurecheck.com.
