Unlocking performance through people
It's simple; leaders train their teams. We know this from our annual research and see it in successful client implementations.
To be a high-performing procurement or supply chain function, your people's approach must be research-based, aligned to corporate objectives, and tailored to your team's needs.
Teams engage more effectively when topics, activities, and workshop exercises have a clear line of sight to day-in-the-life application and action. Bringing a live supplier relationship, category, or sourcing project into the learning environment delivers measurable and evidence-based outcomes, helping you and your team leaders demonstrate a clear return on investment.
Depending on the scale of your team, our training can be delivered using a range of standardised modules or by designing a more tailored program informed by a team competency assessment and your business needs.
To create a strategic procurement function, technical skills are needed alongside the right interpersonal behaviours.
As set out in the graphic, the highly modular content library covers the full procurement lifecycle enabling quick and easy creation of your bespoke learning programmes. Integral to your training, we provide tools and templates to ensure that best practice is bought to life in your team.
Over 18 years of training experience has taught us that your team will get the most benefit from an informed approach to developing their capabilities. Using the State of Flux competency assessment tool will help you develop an objective viewpoint of your organisational capability across the full procurement lifecycle - from understanding business requirements through to creating new value with your suppliers. Insights from the team capability heatmap enables us to tailor training programmes for individuals and teams respectively.
