FAQ

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to consulting. Your process will depend on what you hope to achieve through your consultancy. 

The general format of our consulting process, however, is straightforward. We first assess your procurement processes, make recommendations, form a strategy, support the implementation of any recommended solutions, evaluate how these solutions add value to your business and, eventually, provide value-added insights to help you get ahead of procurement obstacles in the future.

All our services are aimed at driving growth and resilience across your operations. 

Part of supporting this trajectory is helping you form flexible frameworks that support better responsiveness. This comes in the form of Procurement 4.0, outsourcing, training, and procurement advisory. 

All these services create a system that supports rapid scaling up or down in response to procurement demand.

Sustainability is a goal that your whole organisation must reorientate to accommodate. 

 

This means your focus must be on cutting down wastage, improving resource allocation, and having a positive effect on the environment. We help you approach sustainability in a way that will retain your current production levels and improve your quality. 

We do this by supporting your digitalisation, outsourcing, training, and sourcing needs.

Risk mitigation is a necessary part of running successful operations that can survive through a crisis. 

The best way to lower supply chain risk is by building a strong network of suppliers and ensuring that your company is as self-sufficient as possible. Risk can be alleviated with the right systems and sustainable frameworks in place. Here at Kronos Group, we help you achieve this.

We cater to a range of companies in various industries, stages of growth, and sizes. 

We have supported companies in the healthcare, services, transportation, and construction sectors. If you wish to optimise your procurement function or build a more robust sourcing and supply chain system, get in touch with our team of procurement professionals.
