Our services for your procurement
A global reformation of our procurement processes is upon us. Across industries, the time is now to initiate the necessary changes in terms of organization, supplier and risk management, procurement processes and digital tools. Similarly, companies are increasingly faced with embedding sustainable goals into your organization and committing to your environment. New legislation, customers, shareholders and financial institutions are increasing the pressure regarding sustainable business management. In the coming years, you will have to incorporate environmental protection into your processes and decisions.
Consequently, processes will have to be questioned and restructured, new concepts will have to be developed across departments, and production processes will have to be optimized. Analyze and evaluate relevant trends in your environment and derive development opportunities from them that will help you gain your strategic advantage. Only organizations that develop now will be able to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
Agility and employees with new skills are needed to respond flexibly to current challenges and to be prepared for the long-term disruptive changes. The transformation to the purchasing of tomorrow requires a clear idea of what the job and task profile of the acting persons should look like in the future.
Existing concepts of personnel selection and development are too unspecific to take sufficient account of the changes brought about by digitization. The first step is to create transparency about future procurement goals, tasks and required skills in order to enable targeted and effective collaboration throughout the organization. The decisive factor, however, is to determine a precise picture of the technical and interdisciplinary skills currently available in the procurement team. This is the basis for targeted career and development planning. Activate the potential of your employees and make your team fit with customized training and development concepts.
