“Procurement masters are different. They approach the function more strategically and holistically. They engage more fully with suppliers and frequently work to partner rather than bargain. Perhaps most importantly, procurement masters are technology leaders: They use processing power to increase efficiency; make better and faster decisions; leverage and focus internal skills; and connect with suppliers and third parties.” Accenture, October 2007 How to Create and Sustain Procurement/SRM/Spend Analytics Mastery in Today’s Marketplace • People must be continuously trained, challenged, rewarded and refreshed • Processes must be at or upgraded to best-in-class People Process Mastery Technologyand Data • Technology (esp. analytics) and accurate data serve as the glue to keep your people, processes, profitability and competitive edge world-class and differentiated Sources: Accenture, “High Performance Through Procurement: Accenture Research and Insights into Procurement Performance Mastery,” October 2007, Survey of 225 Companies; and Tim Chapman, Jack Dempsey, Glenn Ramsdell and Mike Reopel, “Purchasing: No Time For Lone Rangers,” McKinsey Quarterly 1997 Number 2.
