My value proposition is what distinguishes me from the next competent person.It has been uniquely crafted from experience, exposure, education and subject specific learning and I passionately integrate it in leading organizations to success.
Having been moulded in a comprehensive cost management system, my recent supply chain exposure rounds my ability to plan for and control expenditure with the ability to influence spend patterns.I understand how to facilitate commodity classification, the understanding of procurement responsibility, the need for and competence to lead cross functional and cross business collaboration, strategic sourcing structures, stakeholder steering committees, train the organization in the strategic sourcing process, the construction and maintenance of a benefits model, the audit of results, accurate and regular reporting, stakeholder and the resulting change management and to comprehensively integrate cost reduction initiatives with financial budgeting, governance and control processes.
As constructive leader my critical responsibilities are the creation of a stretch future vision, leading the process of transformation and directing alignment.I do not belief my role to be the brightest star atop the Xmas tree but rather the switch next to the tree, providing the current so that the lights on the tree can unlock their potential and shine more brightly than ever. I actively and successfully lead the process to sustain transformation imperatives.
I believe that business is in business to make money but socially responsibly so and not to the detriment of others.Every part of what I do serves to responsibly increase the bottom-line.
I have an inquisitive mind and I actively drive a systems approach to thinking - calling for a compelling but stretch picture of the future and then laying the foundation to fill the gap from the current.I understand that being in touch with systems and movement outside of the organization provides options to create a different future.There always is an alternative.
Information driven decision making
I treasure the speed, accuracy and reliability of information for decisive and pro-active decision making.
Unique positioning of governance
I clearly understand that governance is not about finding the biggest stick but about enhancing effectiveness.I therefore position the governance system as critical driver of policy, process, activity and system improvement.
Integrated supply chain experience
My recent integrated supply chain experience gives testimony to my drive to optimize the chain rather than the events in the chain.I understand how to integrate a cost containment drive into the full procure to pay cycle, contracting, strategic sourcing, administration, transport, risk management, customer service, inventory and warehousing, with a distinctive people edge and optimal technology and process utilization, to return improved ROI for the organization.
Integrated financial experience
I integrate my knowledge of financial planning with cost containment initiatives, lead funding drives, manage stock levels and cash and debt cycles, direct systems and reporting and build effective audit practices to give operations the required edge and reduce unnecessary noise.
Very few systems survive independently.I understand that processes and activities are dependent on a spider’s web of interrelated connections and relationships. I believe that transformation is dependent on an approach that comprehensively deals with the various considerations.
To live with integrity and be the custodian of honesty, I hold dearly.Firstly being honest with myself results in an appetite to do and make a difference – I do not need a starter gun and is self directed to achieve.
