Linea Group Join Expert Panel to Review the Challenges Facing E. Government
London, United Kingdom, September 19, 2013 --(PR.com
Group participated in the Business Technology Report on E Government published on September 15th, 2013 in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper.
Speaking specifically on the subject of e.procurement, Ian Chambers, Linea Group Chief Executive commented, "Organisations can benefit significantly from the adoption of e-procurement. Sadly, too few have embraced the technology – perhaps because they have seen others fail to realise the potential benefits. This frequently reflects a failure to employ expert help in its installation."
Experience shows that e-procurement is an essential element of any modern procurement strategy. It will not solve all of your problems overnight, but it will provide the catalyst for fundamental improvement in performance.
To ensure success, organisations must: engage procurement, change management and process improvement expertise; develop and deploy a coherent procurement strategy; thoroughly review existing processes; assess the need and create a proper business case; define the appropriate procurement specification, aligned to the needs assessment; develop a project plan to ensure timely implementation and benefits realisation and communicate with stakeholders to create "buy in" and overcome natural resistance.
Ian Ormrod, Linea Group Director of Continuous Improvement Programmes added, "Linea Group has a long and successful track record supporting clients in the delivery of procurement efficiencies. We continue to expand our capability in this area through our team of experienced practitioners and sector experts."
