Strategic Sourcing & Cost Management

  • Determining the right sourcing strategy and executing it effectively is the primary driver of cost savings throughout the sourcing lifecycle. ISS offers a range of strategic sourcing services spanning the development and implementation of organisational sourcing strategies, including make versus buy assessments that can radically shape the future shape of an organisation, through to the design and delivery of category specific sourcing programmes that deliver in year P&L cost savings.

    Our services are customised to meet client requirements but would typically include:

    • Programme design and set up – planning for success
    • Spend base analysis and spend segmentation
    • Building and overseeing the establishment of prioritised category sourcing programmes
    • Ongoing monitoring and management of such programmes including key stakeholder management to agreed targets
    • Measuring and validating cost savings

    The need to work with the business is key to success and therefore we seek to take into account the needs and requirements of key stakeholders, and utilise existing skills and capability resident within the organisation, supplemented where necessary with external expertise, as opposed to flooding an assignment with consultants.
