Competence Development

For Organisations


Newpoint offers an innovative approach to competence development for organisations focused on the delivery of real business value. This utlises a unique methodology for redesigning, aligning and optimising organisational processes and systems internally and within supply chains, which is based on the use of the QV® Sourcing Strategy Improvement Methodology.

The QV® Methodology assists the identification of key areas for Sourcing Process Redesign and Optimisation, and our Category Management & Strategic Sourcing Implementation work. The aim of this is to identify immediate areas for improvements in value for money (VFM) so that industry-leading quality, cost and delivery (QCD) outcomes can be achieved.

Newpoint provides competence development for organisations to help them identify the appropriate type of category management and strategic sourcing processes and systems for their needs, and then to assist them in building and embedding this cross-functionally in the organisation and across their suppliers and supply chains. This is through the following offerings:
