Procurement ‘wiring’ describes the management processes, expectations and behaviours that determine how effectively a Procurement organisation performs. It is what drives your team to certain outcomes and ways of operating time and again. We start by assessing your current wiring, and then work with you to leverage strengths. We then address the gaps that create communication breakdowns, rework, misaligned priorities, missed expectations and other frustrations. Strong procurement wiring helps organisations get full value from supply contracts, improved performance from suppliers, and robust stakeholder engagement.

One of the contributions that PIP made, was to help us to think about procurement in an operational sense. It was evident that they had worked in the plants, they had worked in manufacturing and so the tools are not generic tools used for office supplies or used for indirect materials; they were tools that were very much influenced by their operational industrial experience.GENERAL MANAGER – GLOBAL PROCUREMENT
