Change Management in Procurement Transformation

Procurement Transformation Change Management Services

Proper change management strategies include communication and targeted user training

If your organization is planning a major procurement transformation project, Corcentric is here to help you reach your desired business outcomes. Our Advisory team is equipped with the processes, tools and systems needed to transition your people through change.

No matter the size or scope of your project, it is vital to incorporate a well thought out change management strategy. If employees do not understand the reasoning behind the change and possess the necessary skills, adoption will not occur. With decades of experience leading procurement transformation initiatives, we frequently observe that an effective change management strategy is a primary differentiator between a successful transformation and one that does not realize its intended outcomes.

Successful Procurement Transformation Roadmaps

Our Advisory team is here to develop and manage change management implementation plans that will ensure your procurement transformation initiative meets or exceeds its business case. Our process consists of the following steps:

  • Conduct assessments to measure the impact of your change and identify the affected groups
  • Collect and analyze data to determine individual barriers to change
  • Develop targeted change management plans
  • Implement change management plans
  • Track adoption and utilization
  • Assess gaps and conduct root cause analysis
  • Design and deliver corrective action plans
  • Establish change reinforcement and sustainability measures


Throughout this process we will ensure leadership, project management, and change management teams are aligned and integrating activities into a master Procurement Transformation project timeline. We will develop schedules to guide communication of key messages, ensure active sponsor engagement, and delivery of training workshops. Corcentric’s change management capabilities are integrated into our procurement transformation service, but are also available as a stand-alone offering should a member of your internal team be leading your transformation efforts. If your procurement transformation project involves changes to any or all of the items listed below, we are here to help:

Category Management: Engaging Stakeholders, Delivering Results

Category management has been instrumental in procurement’s ongoing evolution. Strong category management programs can bridge the gap between a tactical business enabling procurement function and becoming a strategic business partner. Procurement and strategic sourcing groups can apply category management to speed up supplier onboarding and implementation, and to develop more targeted and agile vendor management strategies. Corcentric’s consultants have three decades of experience developing category and spend management programs that enable clients to better support stakeholders in all business departments.
