Kaye/Bassman’s Procurement and Supply Chain Management practice delivers targeted executive leadership, mid-level management, and key individual talent for best-in-class organizations.Leading companies understand that maintaining the “status quo” in their procurement, warehousing, transportation, logistics and supply chain data management practices is simply not an option if they wish to succeed. With an ever-changing landscape of volatile commodity prices, shifting manufacturing capacities, inconsistent demand, and intense competition, there has never been more incentive for competitive companies to upgrade and expand their PSCM talent.Today’s most successful organizations are moving aggressively to meet these challenges head-on. They are seeking procurement and supply chain talent with advanced degrees, financial acumen, cross-functional and cross-industry experience. Professionals with the relational skills, problem solving ability, and emotional intelligence required to generate quantitative analysis and then deliver qualitative results are in extremely high demand. Simply put, top companies seek overachievers with the drive, vision, and self-discipline to make an immediate impact on the company’s bottom line as well as its culture. Another break from the past: best-in-class procurement and supply chain organizations are increasingly led by an executive with boardroom access and the support of a chief executive’s mandate for change. As a strategic business function comprised of interdependent disciplines, procurement and supply chain management is experiencing a renaissance in talent and it’s paying off. Benchmarking research shows that best-in-class procurement and supply chain departments book substantially more savings in their budgets, have much lower operating expenses, achieve a much greater percentage of spend under management and enjoy higher contract compliance than average companies. And what’s more, their focus is being elevated from tactical to strategic – from just winning unit price concessions and volume discounts to achieving sustainable value creation.Through the flexibility of our Client Focused Search approach, which provides proper alignment of expectations based on the service level and urgency our client requires, and our Market Mastery model of proactively developing candidate relationships in core functional disciplines ahead of need, Kaye/Bassman’s Procurement and Supply Chain Practice has the experience, process and tools to help our clients tap the strategic leadership and tactical talent they need.
