MarkKuipers.PNGThis month SmartProcurement profiles Mark Kuipers, Chief Director: Capacity Building, National Treasury and Chairman of the SCM Council.

The SCM Council seeks to professionalise supply chain management (SCM) within South Africa - making it a discipline governed by national SCM norms, standards and principles. The Council engages with SCM stakeholders to unpack leading practices and strategies that can be used to qualify SCM practitioners in the country.

Currently an 'Interim SCM Council', it was launched as a collaborative effort between National Treasury's Chief Directorate: Capacity Building, within the Office of the Accountant-General (OAG), and the Office of the Chief Procurement Officer (OCPO). A fully-fledged SCM Council will be established in terms of the Public Procurement Bill as soon as it is enacted.

How do 9 CPOs improve relationships with their business partners?

Fabian_Ziegler.pngMatthias Gutzmann recently came across a quote from Fabian Ziegler, the CPO for Shell, at this year's World Procurement Congress in London who said, "Procurement is a relationship business." An article by Steve Kiefer, GM's purchasing chief, called "Relationships Matter" echoes this sentiment.

Fabian's quote is especially resonant because building business relationships - both internally and externally - is so critical to procurement's business success, today and in the future. Sure, other functions also require strong relationship-building skills, but as procurement's definition of value is evolving from "savings only" to "value beyond savings," these (soft) skills are paramount for procurement to deliver on this new promise.

Given the relevance of this topic, Gutzmann, the Vice President of Old Street Labs (the creators of Vizibl - a platform that links buyers and sellers to aid supplier management and collaboration) wanted to explore further and reached out to his fellow CPO friends to see how they improve relationships with their business partners.

Here is what they said:
