Purse strings are held tighter than ever these days, and managing a budget demands a successful program management team to ensure success. Program Managers require cross-functional input from all disciplines when making decisions that affect customer satisfaction and bottom line results. They have to depend on subject matter expertise while educating a team of managers so that the best overall decision is made consistently.
A big part of this is material management and/or supply chain organizations. They can often encompass a majority of the program from a performance, schedule and cost perspective. How you manage your program requirements when flowing down to this second tier can make or break you.
OP Consulting has the experience in managing and understanding this process and can put together a management plan that ensures success; or, OP-CG can provide the day-to-day administrative oversight to free you to focus on other aspects of your business.
OP-CG will guide you through this critical function, ensuring that the priorities of the program remain the priorities of the suppliers. From executing timely and competitive proposals to meet schedule, to deciding on the correct contract vehicle to incentivize and motivate your supplier base, to administrating and closing out contracts at the end of the period of performance, OP-CG can help you manage this area so the end result is a successful program and healthy bottom line.
