Set up of an indirect purchasing organization

posted in: Projects | 0

Client: Worldwide leading generics company
Objective: Set up central indirect purchasing organisation by consolidating decentral purchasing offices (10 months)

We accompanied the set up of the central purchasing organization from scratch. We planned and coordinated all parts of the setup process, including coordination and recruiting of nine management positions via three different headhunters (including selection, briefing, and candidate filtering), establishing interview guidelines, conducting preliminary interviews, defining roles and responsibilities, developing onboarding plans, and providing support for the candidates once they were on board.

Key success factors: Stakeholder management at all levels of the company, good recruiting and onboarding processes for new employees
