Purspective has delivered great support to encourage horizontal procurement thinking besides vertical thinking. Collaboration and confidence have proven to be the key success factors within this training programme.

Mondi has selected Purspective as a partner for the development of the Mondi Procurement Academy in order to develop the ideal combination of external state of the art procurement knowledge (provided by Purspective) and internal Mondi best practices. This project enables us to further enhance the professionalism of our procurement community and is very well perceived by the organisation. The benefits are seen in terms of saving contribution (hard facts) and are also reflected in the results of our recent employee survey (soft facts).

Océ developed one global procurement community across 4 major sites on 3 continents. Purspective understood our challenges very well and developed a program that supported Océ in this transformation. We now all speak the same procurement language, and have grown together as one, also in terms of procurement maturity.

In 2002 Purspective joined forces with the Dutch Procurement Association, NEVI. As part of NEVI, the world’s third largest supply management association, we incorporate academic research, peer communities and best practices in our tailored programmes.
