Our Secret to Procurement Process Transformation
Einstein defined insanity as, “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Unfortunately, that’s what many consultants bring to the table – the same tired models with your company name inserted throughout. At Nitor, our belief is that true procurement transformation requires a cultural shift driven by behavioral change in your organization. We have a proven, systematic approach to help you move your organization from where it is today to the vision you have for tomorrow.
The key steps to any procurement transformation include:
- Establishing the mission statement for each of the 8 Source-to-Pay Elements
- Identifying the key activities and sub-tasks in each of the Elements
- Conducting a gap analysis to transform the current state to desired state
- Developing the People-Process-Technology aspects required to support the transformation
- Establishing the key metrics which each of the 8 Source-to-Pay Elements will be measured against
- Developing an implementation plan with project charter, resources, milestones and governance
Strategy and Operating Model
Aligning the transformation plan to the “existing” and “to-be” organizational operating model is critical. We help design the future state and construct the business plan to be accepted by the organization. We roadmap the projects to be invested in, roles to be filled, and value to be driven.
Change Assessment and Strategy
Transformation obviously requires significant change in process and technology. Too often, however, companies assume that, “if we build it, they will come” and ignore the impact process/technology change has on people. Our change management methodology ensures that your transformation efforts are sustainable by guiding your associates toward new behaviors and skills.
A transformation program has many components and must be executed through robust planning and rigorous implementation. We apply our project management skills and methodology to ensure objectives are delivered and your transformation initiative is successful.
