Sustainable performance improvement requires both organisational change and the upskilling of procurement resources.  However, many Executives express concerns when it comes to their own organisation’s ability to implement major change - with many promising initiatives failing to embed for the long term.  

Procura work with organisations as they journey up the procurement maturity curve from ‘operational’ to ‘excellent’, shifting from an availability focus through price focus to cost focus and finally a value focus.  Each step change requires an effective alignment with broader organisational goals - in terms of Strategy, Processes, Strategic Sourcing, Infrastructure & Tools and Resources.
