To understand if it’s worth to take your Procurement to the next level of maturity, consider the following questions:
- Are processes standard across business locations?
- Do policies and governance drive compliance to strategic suppliers and contracts?
- Can you tie the value from your sourcing activities back to the bottom line?
- Do you use technology to drive process automation and standardization?
- Do you have older, legacy systems that have been highly customized and are difficult to maintain?
- Do you have a high number of manual, invoice-only transactions?
- Are you processing a high volume of low value invoices?
- Does your data have the right level of granularity and accuracy at the source to provide reliable metrics to measure operational performance?
- Are your vendor and material masters reliable?
