At Gestalt, we understand the challenges that organizations face in meeting the elevated requirements for procurement from black-owned and black female-owned suppliers. Our services go beyond traditional approaches by taking a comprehensive look at the entire value chain of your business. We aim to identify feasible and sustainable alternatives to drive Supply and Value Chain Transformation.

To transform your procurement, you have three primary options:

  1. Encouraging current suppliers to be more compliant.
  2. Finding new suppliers that meet the required criteria.
  3. Developing emerging suppliers through targeted initiatives.

However, true transformation often requires thinking “outside the box” and reassessing your entire value chain, including strategic acquisitions and the sale of assets.

The Supplier Project offered by Gestalt focuses on assessing the comprehensive scope of your business’s value chain. Through this project, we establish an effective supply chain strategy and transformation plan. It typically begins with a supply chain review workshop, followed by a data-gathering and assessment phase. Finally, the project concludes with the approval of the Supply Chain Transformation Plan.

Our Approach:

Our approach starts with a thorough review of the current compliance status of your supplier base. We explore various options to advance transformation within the vertical supply chain. Gestalt conducts a supplier assessment to identify opportunities for a supplier transformation project. This assessment enables us to map out a proposed strategy for Procurement and Supplier Development.

During the assessment, we test several opportunities against your current procurement practices. This includes evaluating procurement clustering, revising insourcing and outsourcing strategies, distinguishing between core and non-core activities, and reviewing both supply and distribution channels.

Based on the findings, we present and discuss the proposed strategy. This includes planning, policy creation, and objectives for procurement. The strategy is then transformed into a detailed project plan, which may include a review of your procurement policies and objectives.
