Why the Smart Consulting Sourcing Project ?

Only 7% of executives feel adequately equipped to buy consulting services. Using best practices could lead on average to 30% of savings, improve the bottom line, and fuel additional projects to create tremendous value. All conditions are gathered for clients to disrupt the way consulting is procured.

Yet embarking in this transformation is not easy. It requires access to knowledge, training and persistence. We share a lot of thought leadership on line but there was no way to keep track of everything and its was difficult to know where to start. This is why we created the Smart Consulting Sourcing Project.

Smart Consulting Sourcing Project is our Step-by-Step system to optimize your consulting sourcing. With a vast knowledge base, members only content, a roadmap to excellence. 1 on 1 sessions and a community to support you we have assembled the perfect system to transform your consulting procurement.
