GLS BP Procurement Framework Training™ (Premium)

Recognising best practice procurement structures

The Problem

You want to understand what a best practice procurement function looks like. 

Related challenges include:

  • you don’t know what best practice looks like
  • the business wants to see tangible value from procurement
  • contracts are taking too long to close
  • spikes in busyness are hard to mange
  • your processes aren’t crystal clear
  • your vendor strategy is opaque
  • suppliers are not being performance managed
  • legal are slowing your team down
  • experience levels across the team vary greatly
  • your vendors complain too frequently

Wouldn’t it be nice to get a concise view of what best practice looks like?
