business transformation

As organisations transform themselves or their services, they have an opportunity to change the interaction and alignment of the procurement function within the business and its supply chain. Transformation can:

  • create disruption, value and deliver on the overall business strategy
  • move procurement to or from a decentralised or centralised function
  • integrate the function to achieve the business goals
  • include people, process and technology enablement
  • include the ‘make or buy’ options to deliver more value
  • be agnostic across all e-enablement platforms
  • drive automation and standardisation across a business
  • the problem

    At 4C we understand the challenges our clients face with procurement transformation, which can include:

    • a poor performing function
    • misalignment with the goals of the organisation
    • lack of controls and governance
    • poor data visibility
    • poor performing suppliers with little innovation
    • low internal or external engagement
    • culture issues
    • high cost of service
    • lack of agility
    • inability to support wider strategic challenges
    • inability to drive and enable sustainable change internally or across the supply chain.
