What we do

Our low-touch, high-impact interventions can meet a wide range of purchasing and negotiation needs. We can deliver a full procurement transformation, from diagnostic assessment through to implementing an appropriate strategy and ensuring ongoing compliance. Or organizations can tap into one of our individual procurement programs – Category Management, Supplier Relationship Management, The Buyer’s Toolkit, Sustainable Procurement, or one of our specialist negotiation programs. Each of these areas is built on a unique best practice methodology and supported by high-impact learning and development.

Learning is delivered through a mix of inspirational interactive training, online platforms, tools and digital resources. Our training courses can be conducted in-house at the client organization’s own premises in locations almost anywhere in the world.
