Achieving procurement leadership through external services

Whitepaper: Achieving procurement leadership through external services

4C Associates Procurement, Whitepapers

In this whitepaper, we look at why and how the use of external support and bought in services or resource has become so critical for procurement leaders. The range and complexity of what is expected from leaders now means that no procurement function can meet all the demands put on it without making good use of external resources, whether that be software providers, consultants, managed services or training and recruitment specialists.

We consider some of the alternatives available in terms of resource-based services in particular, and discuss the differences between some of the major options; consultancy, managed services and contingent labour specifically. We also discuss the sort of areas where these external options can be most useful, discuss the pros and cons of each, and suggest which might be appropriate in different situations.
