Are you struggling with how to address an overly administrative, confusing, and lengthy contracting process? Process mapping is an excellent first step toward cutting down cycle times and engaging members across different departments to jumpstart procurement reform. Process maps help you come to a shared understanding of all steps involved in a procurement process and foster discussion around which of those steps are creating more strain than value. Once you understand the problem areas, you can better design and implement meaningful solutions.

This training covered the mechanics of process mapping and how it can be an asset to your procurement transformation efforts. We shared tips for beginning process mapping and included sample slides that attendees could use for their own process mapping exercise.
