DOCUMENT DESCRIPTION

The procurement strategies at many organizations lack the flexibility to adapt to radical changes occurring today. Gone are the days when organizations could have managed supply markets using relatively simple tools and techniques--e.g. RFIs, RFPs, bundled products and services, and multi-year contracts etc. Markets, nowadays, are disparate and expect vastly different methods to operate.

To endure the procurement challenges of this age, the Purchasing Chessboard is a broad framework, developed by A.T. Kearney, to address almost any supply and demand market condition. The Purchasing Chessboard is a compilation of insights and experience from thousands of purchasing projects performed worldwide.

This slide deck provides a detailed description of the 4 purchasing strategies under the Purchasing Chessboard and a high-level view of the framework’s implementation. The 4 critical purchasing strategies include:

1. Leverage competition among suppliers
2. Seek joint advantage with suppliers
3. Change the nature of demand
4. Manage spend

Within the Purchasing Chessboard framework, we further break down the 4 purchasing strategies into 16 levers and further into 64 methods. All the 64 standalone methods in the Purchasing Chessboard present a unique differentiating tactic to work with suppliers to reduce costs and increase value. Each method maps to a specific lever, which maps to a specific strategy.

The presentation deck also includes some slide templates for you to use in your own business presentations.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

  •  
    "The wide selection of frameworks is very useful to me as an independent consultant. In fact, it rivals what I had at my disposal at Big 4 Consulting firms in terms of efficacy and organization."

    – Julia T., Consulting Firm Owner (Former Manager at Deloitte and Capgemini)
  •  
    "I have used FlevyPro for several business applications. It is a great complement to working with expensive consultants. The quality and effectiveness of the tools are of the highest standards."

    – Moritz Bernhoerster, Global Sourcing Director at Fortune 500
  •  
    "One of the great discoveries that I have made for my business is the Flevy library of training materials.

    As a Lean Transformation Expert, I am always making presentations to clients on a variety of topics: Training, Transformation, Total Productive Maintenance, Culture, Coaching, Tools, Leadership Behavior, etc. Flevy usually has just what I need to make my point.

    It is well worth the money to purchase these presentations. Sure, I have the knowledge and information to make my point. It is another thing to create a presentation that captures what I want to say. Flevy has saved me countless hours of preparation time that is much better spent with implementation that will actually save money for my clients."

    – Ed Kemmerling, Senior Lean Transformation Expert at PMG
  •  
    "I like your product. I'm frequently designing PowerPoint presentations for my company and your product has given me so many great ideas on the use of charts, layouts, tools, and frameworks. I really think the templates are a valuable asset to the job."

    – Roberto Fuentes Martinez, Manager at Technology Transformation Advisory
  •  
    "As an Independent Management Consultant, I find Flevy to add great value as a source of best practices, templates and information on new trends. Flevy has matured and the quality and quantity of the library is excellent. Lastly the price charged is reasonable, creating a win-win value for the customer, Flevy and the various authors. This is truly a service that benefits the consulting industry and associated clients. Thanks for providing this service. "

    – Jim Schoen, Principal at FRC Group

    "[Flevy] produces some great work that has been/continues to be of immense help not only to myself, but as I seek to provide professional services to my clients, it give me a large "tool box" of resources that are critical to provide them with the quality of service and outcomes they are expecting."

    – Royston Knowles, Executive with 50+ Years of Board Level Experience
  •  
    "As a small business owner, the resource material available from FlevyPro has proven to be invaluable. The ability to search for material on demand based our project events and client requirements was great for me and proved very beneficial to my clients. Importantly, being able to easily edit and tailor the material for specific purposes helped us to make presentations, knowledge sharing, and toolkit development, which formed part of the overall program collateral. While FlevyPro contains resource material that any consultancy, project or delivery firm must have, it is an essential part of a small firm or independent consultant's toolbox."

    – Michael Duff, Managing Director at Change Strategy (UK)
  •  
    "FlevyPro has been a brilliant resource for me, as an independent growth consultant, to access a vast knowledge bank of presentations to support my work with clients. In terms of RoI, the value I received from the very first presentation I downloaded paid for my subscription many times over! The quality of the decks available allows me to punch way above my weight – it's like having the resources of a Big 4 consultancy at your fingertips at a microscopic fraction of the overhead."

    – Roderick Cameron, Founding Partner at SGFE Ltd
  •  
    "As a young consulting firm, requests for input from clients vary and it's sometimes impossible to provide expert solutions across a broad spectrum of requirements. That was before I discovered Flevy.com.

    Through subscription to this invaluable site of a plethora of topics that are key and crucial to consulting, I have been able to exceed expectations and deliver quality advice and solutions to my clients. The quality and expertise of the authors are exemplary and gives me great confidence to use as part of my service offerings.

    I highly recommend this company for any consultant wanting to apply international best practice standards in their service offerings. "

    – Nishi Singh, Strategist and MD at NSP Consultants
