Your Supplier Collaboration programme is not over once it’s up and running. While Vizibl Activate and Vizibl Accelerate assess your baseline, uplift the capability of your team, and establish your roadmap to success, Vizibl Achieve ensures you remain on track to deliver against your strategic goals across the first three years of your Supplier Collaboration and Innovation (SC&I) programme. The goal of Achieve is to embed collaborative ways of working into every facet of your procurement function over the long term as your programme matures, effectively turning SC&I into BAU. Ongoing support and monitoring from the Vizibl team ensures that you guard against value leakage or performance degradation to maintain your momentum driving value to your wider organisation.
Vizibl Achieve focuses on consolidating the improvements you’ve made over the Activate and Accelerate phases, driving continuous improvement as your programme matures. Designed to ensure that you stay on track against the strategic goals of your programme, ongoing monitoring and issue resolution during this phase allows you to make course corrections, track the progress of your Active Collaborative Relationships (ACRs), and scale your existing successes more broadly.
Monitor your relationships
Vizibl Achieve ensures that your relationships continue to follow the principles & ethos of Supplier Collaboration as they develop, and that your work with suppliers continues to follow the roadmap of targets you established in the Activate phase.
Prove your progress
Revised maturity assessments, stakeholder interviews, and gap analysis allow you to demonstrate the strides you have made, while the Vizibl platform’s robust reporting functionality shows your ACR progress over time.
Scale your success
With your programme flourishing and its benefits to the business proven, our team will help you explore further opportunities to deepen your “customer of choice” relationships and identify further opportunities for collaboration & innovation.
During the Achieve phase of your programme, our team will use many of the tools and processes we began the programme with in order to assess your progress, highlight any areas for improvement, and set new baselines for future comparisons as the programme matures further. Proactive alerting, ongoing monitoring, and issue consulting from our team prevent performance degradation as Supplier Collaboration becomes business as usual and ensure that your Active Collaborative Relationships continue to trend positively.
Further stakeholder interviews within your business and amongst its supply base after the implementation of the programme provide quantitative & qualitative insights into the successes & learnings from the journey thus far.
Repeating Vizibl’s out of the box maturity assessment allows you to get an updated appraisal of your Supplier Collaboration maturity, demonstrating both how far you have come and where room for improvement remains.
The revised maturity assessment is used to repeat the gap analysis, demonstrating how far you have progressed towards best-in-class performance whilst highlighting remaining areas with value left on the table.
