First, we will create a customized plan. Your strategic sourcing structure, be it a shared service, centralized, decentralized, or hybrid model will define the plan. K2 Sourcing can help create and implement the desired model including defining key structural options, processes, and reporting and governance.
K2 Sourcing will help you implement the plan setting up commodity structures, setting up users and permissions, and loading suppliers. This can include active supplier on boarding as well as building corporate RFP templates and event level messaging. We can load your templates or K2 Sourcing has several hundred customizable RFP templates that have been used by similar organizations.
Training is provided on-site or off-site. Training is never outsourced and is led by Implementation Managers that have run hundreds of RFPs on behalf of clients. Our implementation managers have over 15 years of strategic sourcing experience. Training culminates with one-on-one meetings with individual users to ensure their templates will maximize their efficiency and to make sure their first events are successful.
Call us at any time to set up specialized refresher training or get help on a specific category. Ongoing, we will meet on a normal cadence to continuously improve the program and ensure the digital transformation achieves the desired outcomes. K2 Sourcing will continue to develop the organization’s capabilities by providing best practice category RFP webinars, facilitate meetings with noncompeting company peers, support building greater stakeholder engagement, and provide ongoing education and training. This is to maximize your return on investment and support team turnover.
