Benchmarking the Procurement Benchmarkers – An Insider’s Guide (Part 3) [PRO]
In part three of Pierre’s four-part series on benchmarking procurement benchmarks, he examines two larger consulting organizations, A.T. Kearney and Accenture. Beyond A.T. Kearney’s ROMSA benchmark is the company’s AEP study (Assessment of Excellence in Procurement). AEP is primarily an assessment around procurement capabilities, with some level of measurement surrounding performance. Additionally, Pierre explains the mixed bag that is Accenture in regards to benchmarking and how their recent acquisition of Procurian affects their benchmarking capabilities.
