To effectively measure quality – which in marketing procurement is as important as assessing cost – procurement needs to know what problems they are trying to solve. Sourcing partners that deliver the best value at the best price is what demonstrate procurement’s expertise and value-adding role. Unfortunately, the greatest challenge facing marketing procurement people today is still that procurement never truly owns the scope of work, nor the relationship of what they are tasked to buy. Choosing the right agency partner is a competitive advantage and the right team at the right investment can dramatically improve strategic, creative and ROI. By collaborating with your partners, you can determine the real metrics for efficiency and the real measurements for success. After all, what matters is what should be measured. Procurement that is committed to stable, high-performing partnerships stands to gain significant value, which – surprisingly – can deliver against the procurement targets without always being at the lowest cost.
