In May’s edition of Supply Chain Digital, we examined GEP’s procurement drive.

The role of procurement is advancing at speed. Organisations all over the world are encouraging their procurement teams to play a more active part in overall corporate growth and deliver sustainable business results. In order to meet these new expectations, procurement organisations should transform their legacy processes, practices and structures in order to align them to the current needs of the enterprise.

The most critical challenge is in implementation. Organisations often follow the path of creating detailed transformation roadmaps and implementation plans, many times using outside expertise, but failing to understand the benefits in the real world.
