From strategy to operations, we are committed to helping our clients build their functional skills from the ground up and improve performance for the long term.
Our clients ask us to help them solve their most challenging problems, and to do so, we draw on a range of problem-solving techniques and analytical approaches. We only hire consultants who are intellectually strong, and we support them with a wide range of analytical approaches and advanced technology tools to enable us to take on and resolve very challenging problems.
Our deep understanding of what makes doing business so different in Mainland China – the unique and fast-changing environmental and business challenges facing companies, and their very different corporate cultures and management mindsets – stems from our long operating experiences in China and deep local presence and connections.
Strategic Sourcing is one of our core competencies. What makes us unique is our ability to apply our process to virtually any significant expenditure area. Our firm has sourced chicken and desserts for theme parks, custom molded parts for fighter jets, and a 170-country fulfillment infrastructure for print. We can tackle your most complex or constrained categories and help with delicate incumbent renegotiations or complex make or buy analyses. And for common indirect spend areas such as freight, temporary labor, telecommunications, and other areas, we bring extensive benchmarks, custom built analytics tools, and other expertise based on sourcing these universal categories as many as 10 – 30 times per year for clients of all sizes.
Our process begins with data analytics and includes hands-on negotiations with suppliers. We help implement any new agreements that result and lay the foundation for ongoing, world-class category management. We recognize that your suppliers are often critical to your business so we take an integrity-based approach to our sourcing process. Our goal is to ensure suppliers are treated fairly and relationships are preserved or even enhanced by our process.
