Launch the Transformation Initiative
As result of the develop phase, each of distinct opportunities for improvement are organized and prioritized into a structured business case for purposes of developing a formal prioritization, timeline for implementation and executive approval.
Now you are ready to implement the Transformation Roadmap. It’s here where Velocity Procurement deploys various services to assist the you with implementing the areas of improvement defined in the roadmap.
The actual Transformation Roadmap will vary based on the your improvement recommendations. The custom Transformation Roadmap will consist of one or more of the following activities:
