We live and breathe Sourcing.

We are proud to have some of the best known and highly regarded Sourcing talent in the market – leading authorities in Shared Services and Outsourcing.  We are passionate about the benefits Sourcing and Operational Transformation can deliver to Clients – growing business, reducing cost, improving service, and delivering real efficiency.

Practitioners and Advisors not mere consultants.

Actions speak louder than words.  That’s why all our Advisors are ‘Hands on’ experts.  We don’t watch from the side lines, we roll our sleeves up and get stuck-in. We make the difficult ‘stuff’ happen.  Our Advisors have current and hands-on experience working on both the demand and supply side of Outsourcing and include experts in Sourcing Strategy, Due Diligence, Transformation, Change Management, Benefits Realisation, Risk Management, Regulation and Compliance.

Sourcing Lifecycle and Operation Transformation Specialists.

All our Advisors have a full understanding of the Sourcing Lifecycle, and typically have more than one specialist Sourcing discipline including ITO, BPO/BTO, KPO, HRO, PO, and FAO.  Our Sourcing Directors and Principal Advisors all have at least one industry vertical deep-dive domain expertise including Banking, Insurance, Energy, Utilities, Pharmaceutical, Manufacturing and Consumer Products.

Experience counts.

Together our team of Advisors have more than 170+ years of Sourcing experience.  Our people consist of a core team supplemented by Associates providing further specialist expertise. The majority of our Advisors are seasoned sourcing professionals, with an average of 15+ years sourcing experience with many of them being former C-suite level executives. They have experience in supporting more than 40+ Clients, on over 100+ projects, and on £10+ billion in Transformation programmes.
