Best-in-Class Benchmarking

CASME’s unique benchmarking studies evaluate the maturity of category procurement practices against a baseline. Graphical reports and the calculation of an overall maturity index enable useful external cross-company comparisons.

What to expect

  • Independent benchmarking within CASME’s membership that compares the maturity of Procurement’s performance with that achieved in other corporate organisations
  • Graphical representation of the maturity level in comparison with leading practice, and overall ranking relative to other procurement teams
  • External confirmation as to whether performance is at, or near, the best-in-class for a given category.

Key takeaways

  • Identify areas of strength in Procurement’s strategies and processes
  • Recognise potential opportunities to minimise the difference between current operations and leading practice
  • Develop appropriate category objectives and support internal planning for Procurement
  • Highlight areas in which Procurement can improve procurement maturity and processes.
