Measuring More Than Savings
LinkedIn
February 24, 2023
Procurement cost savings have a bit of a bad reputation and often serve to alienate the function from wider business objectives. By reframing procurement to align with the wider organisations goals, we can become a strategic partner rather than a tactical cost-cutting function.
In this article, I look at some other metrics we can use, how to measure them, and a process to continuously review and improve.

The RFP is Dead – Long Live Agile Sourcing!
Acada
August 12, 2022
The RFP has been Procurement’s approach to managing complex sourcing for many years, providing comfort that a rigorous and objective process has been run to select a supplier.

Many months of effort on all sides go into writing lengthy sets of requirements, asking and answering questions, crafting beautiful documentation and scoring.

We talk about ‘what’ we want suppliers to do and ‘how’ we want them to do it, judging them on how close they come to our singular view of the world.

We rarely provide more than a paragraph of ‘why’ we need this or what we want to achieve.

But is an RFP the most effective way of choosing the right supplier for the job?
