PMA Benchmarking

How does your firm's procurement organisation measure up?

Overall assessment

We categorise responses into four quadrants: 

  • Basic: The Procurement Operating Model is at a low level of maturity across both dimensions of infrastructure and execution.
  • Focused The Procurement Operating Model displays good (medium to high) maturity from an Infrastructure perspective but relatively low maturity on Execution.
  • Aspirational:The Procurement Operating Model displays good (medium to high) maturity from an Execution perspective but relatively low maturity on Infrastructure.
  • Leaders: The Procurement Operating Model is at a high level of maturity across both dimensions of infrastructure and execution.

Your score vs the benchmark data

Each question in the survey is aligned to one of two dimensions: Infrastructure (how good is the setup) and Execution (how well is it put into practice).

Your score across these dimensions is outlined below, with your overall result being used to compare your standing against 200+ other organisations who have participated in this survey, and classifies you in one of four quadrants on the maturity matrix

Your Infrastructure score was X, the average score from our benchmark data was X

There is an opportunity to improve the ‘Infrastructure’ set-up across multiple dimensions in the procurement operating model. Recommendations include:

  • Review of the current team set up (structure, capacity, capability) and consider improvement options through both internal and / or external means
  • Review fitness of purpose of processes, policies and tools. Update, refresh, phase out and onboard new (where relevant) to optimise and enable efficient delivery

Your Execution score was X, the average score from our benchmark data was X

The Execution capability requires significant improvement and key immediate recommendations include:

  • Improving monitoring and tracking of adherence and compliance to policies and processes
  • Driving robust future pipeline planning, resource allocation and status tracking to ensure an accurate view of the current state and transparency of performance
