Is your supply chain future proof? NTU are offering a fully funded review of your supply chain strategy and processes.

Our consultants led by Rob Johnson, former Head of Global Purchasing at Jaguar Land Rover, will work collaboratively with your senior management team and key staff to provide strategic advice and planning support in supply chain procurement.

Improving your supply chain has never been more important, allowing you to:

  • save money by reducing cost and improving quality
  • improve performance
  • develop speed, flexibility and innovation capacity
  • build sustainability

However, procurement is complex. There are trade-offs to consider when balancing performance objectives. The right priorities and strategies need to be adopted for different categories of spend. Strong supplier relationships are critical when supplies are limited and times are uncertain.

Let us help you get it right.

What will the consultancy include?

A limited number of short and longer consultancies are available. All businesses attend a strategic procurement workshop prior to their consultancy.
