Competency Frameworks for Procurement
A well-defined Competency Framework for Procurement creates your blueprint for success. By providing an easy way to
measure if your team is acting skillfully and supporting the business goals, your competency framework defines what good looks like.
As a critical component of the competency management process, a competency framework for procurement allows
managers to identify, manage, and develop employee competencies. The approach aligns employees' skills and behaviours with the company's goals and helps create a competitive advantage for your organization.
