3 What and Why Professionalize
Professionalizing Procurement Organization Diagnostics, Vision and Functional Model Collaboration Model Operating Processes and Governance Organization Design Capability Development Framework Workforce Transition Building Capability Any of these ring true? You’ve restructured your Procurement Organization but things have not really changed. You don’t have clear ways of working and duplicate effort, systems and processes. You’ve brought in new capabilities but it hasn’t seemed to have had the effect you were after. You are reliant on traditional approaches to procurement that don’t deliver real business value.

5 Discussion Points – Professionalizing Procurement
Think Feel Do What does your Procurement strategy say about the future shape, structure and resourcing for the organisation? What are the key people capabilities and skills you will require to deliver your Procurement strategy and major programs? What is your people development strategy (covering areas such as competencies and culture) for achieving your Procurement strategy? Is everyone clear about team accountabilities, responsibilities, involvement and hand-offs? How could you cover both Procurement and business competencies over a range of levels? What can you provide people to help them identify and pursue career progression opportunities? What are the specific skills gaps and development needs across the organisation and the relative priorities? Have you updated your learning and development program to align with your competency model? What is your retention and succession strategy? Do you have clear processes that are aligned to how your systems and organisation works? Are there opportunities to group roles more effectively?

8 Discussion Points - Strategic Sourcing
Think Feel Do What does your Procurement strategy say about how you are going to support the wider business goals? Are you getting the best value from your current suppliers? Have you got the right mix of suppliers? Have you got visibility of all supplier spend from across the organisation? How can you engage with the business to ensure that you are managing their demand and expectations and aligning their need with your capacity and expertise? How can you strengthen the relationships with Strategic Suppliers in ways that increase transparency and better align critical business partners to your mission and objectives? Are there opportunities to consolidate suppliers or spend across the Organization? Are there any quick wins that can demonstrate the value of Procurement to the wider Organization? Can you evolve your procurement processes to deliver improved outcomes, whilst still maintaining rigour, accountability and transparency?
