Organisational Design & People Development

  • Creating or improving existing organisational buying and /or post contract management capabilities is critical to helping any organisation realise greater and more sustainable sourcing related business benefits.

    Our range of organisational design services are aimed at helping organisations build and develop either the way they currently purchase third party requirements and or manage the resulting arrangements / relationships.

    Our services in this area are wide ranging but always customised to meet client requirements and would typically include:

    • Review of existing retained functional designs at an organisational level to assess ability to effectively manage existing major contracts and third party relationships (spanning demand management, service management, commercial and contract / supply management).
    • Design, set up, and establishment of Purchasing functions in ‘’green-field’’ situations.
    • Review and improvement of existing Purchasing functions working closely with the Head of Function.
    • Development of competency development frameworks , programmes, assessment frameworks and job related skills profiles as a basis for base-lining and improving existing capability.
    • Development of pragmatic but effective purchasing policy, procedures, and tools.

    The benefits of our approach include: a clear assessment of gaps and areas for development based on the use of defined ‘’best in class’’ frameworks with clear recommendations for change / future improvement, discussion of a range of strategic design options linked to ability to support defined business imperatives, greater clarity around roles and vision, improved execution, plus increased stakeholder and staff satisfaction.
