Procurement Transformation

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 adopts a holistic approach toward procurement transformation that focuses on building a high-performance procurement organization in the shortest period of time. We differentiate ourselves by supporting our clients throughout the transformation journey. In our engagements, we typically run a parallel track of strategic sourcing to help our clients deliver lasting financial results while they build internal capabilities

ADR’s approach has been built around the key enablers of procurement best-in-class practice that includes strategy, structure, processes & tools, people & behavioural skills, value management and technology. Using these as a systematic and 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.
