The Newpoint Supply Chain Academy offers a unique approach to the assessement and benchmarking of organisational and individual competencies in procurement and supply chain management.
The Newpoint approach to competence assessment and benchmarking has been developed from 20 years of research undertaken by our chairman, Professor Andrew Cox, and his colleagues into world-class practices in procurement and supply chain management.
We believe that competence assessment requires the benchmarking of current organisational and individual performance, both against an ideal (or world-class) standard, as well as against best-in-class standards within the industry or sector in which the client operates.
We have developed a number of competence assessment and benchmarking on-line solutions to allow clients to understand the "comparative effectiveness" of their current organisational processes and of their staff. This enables the objective design of competence development and improvement programmes.
