News Release

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 22 January 2020—ALM Intelligence has ranked Deloitte as a global leader in the report, entitled Sourcing Strategy Consulting 2019. On Sourcing Strategy Consulting, Naima Hoque Essing, Senior Research Analyst, Management Consulting Research at ALM, highlights, “Deloitte unleashes the full breadth of its global resources in helping clients rapidly unleash opportunities to reduce cost and create value, applying a multi-functional lens that extends beyond the supply chain to unlock (or preserve) value in an environment of uncertain economic conditions and tariff and trade policies.”

“Amidst a rapidly evolving landscape driven by emerging technologies, clients look to Deloitte for its depth and breadth of capabilities to unlock value,” says Jennifer Brown, principal, Life Sciences and Healthcare, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “As new risks such as cyber enter the forefront and regulations impact business, Deloitte is focused on helping clients address new challenges head on, while remaining focused on innovation and traceability in the supply chain.”

According to ALM, Sourcing Strategy Consulting is defined as “part of supply chain consulting and forms part of the management consulting services directed at clients’ middle office activities. Its objective is to improve the way in which companies transform inputs into outputs to create value for their customers.”

“To us, this accolade speaks to Deloitte’s unwavering commitment to power insights and fuel efficiencies through integrated, technology-forward sourcing solutions,” adds Jim Kilpatrick, Deloitte Global Supply Chain & Network Operations leader. “Moving forward, Deloitte will continue to bring complementary services and customized approaches to clients globally to enable the future procurement organization.”

Additional report findings

  • “To share the benefits of the breadth and depth of its enabling tools and technical resources with clients, Deloitte has developed an innovative and highly-flexible service delivery solution/model, Procurement Central. The solution’s interactive project management and collaboration platform enables clients to retain control and visibility over internal and external resource allocation and work flows, deciding when to use their own resources or opt for on-demand access to Deloitte’s category experts, market researchers, and data scientists, or suite of enabling methodologies, tools and accelerators to realize outcomes faster.”
  • “The delivery model stands out for its cost-effective, light touch consulting approach that also helps procurement overcome common challenges around talent retention.”
  • “Deloitte’s service delivery offers clients access to a wealth of complementary services and supporting resources that work together symbiotically to drive value for clients. Its CPO Executive Transition Labs, Annual CPO Survey, and Greenhouse Ideation centers, for example, draw out top-of-mind issues from procurement leaders, which in turn inform the firm’s development of robust, built for purpose solutions to common procurement pain points.”
