Strategic Sourcing

Strategic sourcing is the primary driver of cost reductions in most procurement organisations. Each project will typically deliver 10-15% of additional benefits.

Experience gained from implementing strategic sourcing in more than 30 Fortune 500 & Public Sector organisations enables our delivery teams to help clients accelerate cost reduction delivery.

For strategic sourcing to be successful, these five building blocks must be in place:

  • Build – design a sourcing process & programme
  • Learn – train ,coach and facilitate category project leaders
  • Apply – lead or support a series of category projects
  • Lead – manage the governance of decision gates
  • Deliver – measure savings and other benefits

Change management is always a key issue for our clients’ success and our approach takes into account the needs and objectives of stakeholders. This helps to build understanding and a strong “pull” for engagement, rather than the “push” of a procurement led agenda.

With a team of more than 40+ sourcing professionals we have the experience to deliver cost reductions in most categories of direct and indirect expenditure.
