As a Purchasing Professional, you definitely deal with spend reduction on a daily basis. Today, more and more companies are developing alternative metrics to measure not only the price reduction but also various aspects of the Total Cost of Ownership, some hidden costs of which could be quite significant. But:
In a world driven by financial performance, purchasing governance has put the measurement of the price at the center of the spend reduction. Is it efficient? Are we measuring the right thing?
More and more companies acknowledge that their governance systems are measuring what is easy to measure – and not necessarily what is important to measure. More and more companies are developing alternative metrics to measure not only the price reduction but also various aspects of the Total Cost of Ownership, some hidden costs of which could be quite significant.
It is a cultural change in Purchasing organisations, who are trying to go beyond measuring the obvious striving to measure added value of the purchasing function. But, how to measure the less obvious?
The workshop will cover what companies are doing in terms of measuring risk reduction, value creation, short and long term benefits, innovation and stakeholders’ satisfaction.
The discussions will be supported by Best Practices presentations, fruitful exchanges, and the results of the EIPM Survey that covers TCO practices, savings accountability and purchasing governance:
measuring the risk reduction
measuring the value creation
changing and promoting new metrics which put forward what buyers are doing
measuring the long term benefits vs short term ones
federating people and functions around the measurement of value
