Our Approach Overview
Future Purchasing is a specialist procurement consultancy formed in 2002 and with its head office in Guildford, UK. We are acknowledged experts in highly practical procurement improvement and transformation, with a strong track record in cost reduction, category management and performance learning.
Mission: building, educating and applying procurement excellence is the sole focus of what we do. Our clients secure breakthrough levels of cost reduction and supplier performance. We achieve that by strengthening procurement as a core business competence.
Deliverables: highly tangible, direct and immediate benefits should flow from any consulting assignment. Our whole rationale and raison d’être is to deliver significant value for our clients, whether that be in financial or operational terms, and it needs to be sustainable beyond our departure.
Clients: we support senior executives, chief procurement officers (CPOs), vice presidents and their leadership teams in large, complex organisations on both immediate and major programmes of change.
Track Record: our experience has been gained from working in procurement consulting as well as very senior practitioner roles for over 20 years. This enables us to provide vision, challenge and perspective together with highly practical and supportive implementation experience. Our stature is recognised by a considerable number of senior procurement professionals within the FT European 500 and across major public sector groups.
Team Profile: we provide outstanding project teams of consultants with exceptionally strong change management, process design, implementation and educational expertise in best practice procurement. Members of our consulting team have been involved in 150+ projects, in 19 sectors and 25 countries, during the past two decades.
Strategic Partners & Our Network: we have a number of very close relationships with carefully selected third parties, designed to provide breadth of competence and capability for our clients. We also have an extremely extensive and close network across CPOs, institutes and universities worldwide.
