Enterprise Portfolio Rationalization

After years of adjustments to sourcing portfolios, most organizations are left with large and complex portfolios that may be optimized in some areas, but are not cohesive portfolios

As enterprise services portfolio mature, the associated complexity of managing diverse categories, locations, service providers, and contracts increases significantly. Large portfolios are typically fraught with fundamental but material challenges that can erode the sourcing value proposition. In such a complex sourcing environment, it’s natural to gravitate towards simple and direct levers to optimize spend and performance, i.e., price and performance benchmarks. However, in our experience there is significantly more value to be realized from large portfolios that go beyond these direct levers.

We have assisted some of the largest global services portfolios with focal recommendations involving:

  • Governance structures and ongoing processes to sustain sourcing benefits
  • Effective vendor competency mapping and management specific to sourcing categories
  • Optimization of sourcing spend and performance
  • Best-class and equitable contracting practices

Please contact us to discuss this in more detail or to request a complimentary diagnostic review of your portfolio.
