Procurement Procurement Capability and Maturity Model


At TKJ we start the procurement transformation process with a Procurement Capability and Maturity Assessment (CAMM). Our CAMM has been devised to enable development across the end-to-end procurement value chain, addressing people, process, systems and structure in line with industry best practices. Our assessments highlight strengths as well as development needs, and the resulting action plans are integrated into everyday operations for continuous improvement.

“Being a strategic business partner means so much more than negotiating a discount” — (Remko van Hoek, 2013).
