A company’s purchasing strategy is often the cornerstone on which the deployment of strategic sourcing is built.
Our specialist team of consultants assist companies with their business plans including the identification, selection and implementation of management change initiatives.
In many instances it is imperative to position the purchasing and Supply Chain department or function at the centre of a business in order to maximize its contribution to company profitability, whilst at the same time, enabling the business to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.
Therefore it is important the function has an agreed mission; is an integral part of a company’s overall strategic planning process; has the optimum organizational structure; and has the right people to implement its strategic sourcing objectives.
Strategic sourcing or strategic purchasing is the process of determining how a business develops its methods of approaching, interacting and managing the interface with its Supply Chain market.
