Transforming procurement in any organization is a significant challenge. Procurement transformation or change management requires an approach that will transition individuals and organizations to a desired future state usually identified through an initial Current State Analysis.
Long-term procurement transformation has four characteristics: scale (the change affects all or most of the organization), magnitude (it involves significant alterations of the status quo), duration (it lasts for months, if not years), and strategic importance.
No single methodology fits every company, so ADR have developed an approach built around the key enablers of procurement best practice that includes processes, tools, thinking & behavioural skills and purchasing techniques that can be adapted to a variety of situations and organizations. Using these as a systematic, comprehensive framework, your procurement team can understand what to expect, how to manage their own personal change, how to engage the entire organization in the process and how to deliver significant sustainable change and maximize the financial and value benefits.
ADR have undertaken many successful procurement change management programs with both large global and smaller local organizations. Our approach is to support you in making the change not to swamp your organization with consultants who do it for you. The result is a change process that meets your organization's cultural needs, is owned by your organization, is sustainable and importantly, is cost effective to implement.
