We have been developing and implementing for over 9 years specific transformation programs via and for Purchasing & Supply Chain expertise to achieve breakthrough results for client companies. We offer tailored programs delived by industry experts with senior leadership expertise as well as academic credentials.
These programs focus on the collective development – for specific teams or for an entire organization – of soft skills as well as of hard skills, and allow to initiate true team dynamics to help achieve concrete « business » results in the field, individual as much as collective.
The objectives of all our programs is to deliver value and competitive advantages to your company, covering the entire spectrum of the supplier resource: cost control, quality, service, innovation capture, footprint optimization, etc.
Traditional “school” training patterns are not effective when working with people from different backgrounds having already extensive professional experience. We therefore use our AAA approach based on an andragogy (adult training) approach to develop programs that work in the field.
If someone doesn’t want to learn, he won’t. In order to put the teams in an « active learning» mode, we make them become aware that they can/need improve their skills to achieve individual and collective objectives
An effective learning happens by inciting the teams to learn while doing and by providing them with the tools to act and implement by themselves. This approach allows them to integrate simultaneously technical and behavioral skills required for the expected transformation of the teams and organization.
In the final phase the teams become autonomous actors who advance in a proactive and more entrepreneurial way while continuing to identify and improve the skills required to achieve their targets.
All of our programs are “backwards”-engineered, meaning that we start by defining the expected results of a program before building a unique sequence with specific ingredients to allow the optimum achievement of said results.
