In the past, sourcing and supply chain groups were considered “cost centers.” Today, executives demand sourcing and supply chain organizations function as strategic partners and value creators. In order to drive Exceptional Business Results, a wide range of functional and strategic skills are required. World Class organizations require functional experts skilled in areas like eSourcing, spend analysis, contract management, etc. In addition they require resources skilled in strategic competencies like project management, change management, consulting and facilitation. It’s no wonder that “Finding and developing the people I need” is consistently ranked as a top concern of Chief Procurement Officers around the globe!

The Challenge: Best practices and benchmarking have made processes and technologies common across industries. True competitive differentiation comes from an organization’s people. Your organization can only deliver the business results its people are skilled to deliver. Few companies today possess the full range of talent necessary to remain competitive and leverage processes and technologies to drive Exceptional Business Results.

The Mpower Group (TMG) takes a competency-based approach that provides support across the entire talent management life-cycle (Hire-to-Retire).
