Developing Bespoke Competency Frameworks for Procurement, Contracting and Supply Chain Professionals

Bespoke Competency Frameworks are the centre of an effective procurement, contracting and supply chain talent management.

Dr Ray Carter and his team can develop competency frameworks which are the integrated knowledge, skills, judgment, and attributes that procurement, contracting and supply chain professionals need to perform their roles effectively.  The advantage of having a defined set of competencies for each role in procurement, contracting and supply chain include:

  • Effective recruitment process
  • Development of effective Personal Development Plans (PDP)
  • Creation of relevant job descriptions
  • Identify skill and competency gaps
  • Development of effective bespoke training and development programs
     

Dr Ray Carter and his team can add value in terms of framework development by

  • Converting industry standard and established competency frameworks to meet the clients specific requirements
  • Developing unique and bespoke competency frameworks for procurement, contracting and supply chain professionals
  • Reviewing, updating and improving existing competency frameworks

“I found your approach to the course preparation very thorough.  It was good to be challenged on exactly what we needed which I appreciate was difficult as we didn't really know, however your guidance got us there in the end”
