The success of your procurement and supply chain largely depends on a number of key strands:
- vision and support
- process robustness
- calibre of the team
- tools and techniques
- making it real.
Over the years, we’ve amassed a vast amount of experience through helping to transform procurement in many different sectors, including nuclear, aggregates, engineering, construction, manufacturing and the public sector. The challenges and lessons have varied tremendously:
- devolvement versus centralisation
- scope of role and remit
- the importance of timing and phasing activity
- ensuring that cost reduction is a catalyst not a spanner in the works
- the need for robust reporting
- communication, communication, communication.
“Since running the SpringTide Strategic Sourcing Awareness programme, there has been a positive step change in our procurement activities. The team are now working from the same reference point and as a result the approach is more consistent. It is not just SpringTide’s content, it is the way they tailor and deliver the content, that adds real value. I would have no hesitation in recommending SpringTide to any organisation that wants to develop and or transform its procurement activity.”
