Procurement meets Productivity

Although our subgroups have been beavering away on projects on your behalf you are probably wondering why we haven't had a meeting of all our members for a while. 

Well, Constructing Excellence South West has been undertaking a root-and-branch review of its work and one of the outcomes is that the Procurement and Productivity Forums are to merge, under the join chairmanship of the two of us: Steve Clark and Martyn Jones.

This offers a great opportunity to exploit the obvious synergies between procurement (setting up the right project team and supply chain within the most appropriate operating system) and productivity (achieving operational excellence across the whole process).

Through the merger we will be able to extend the scope of our work to include the whole design and construction process between RIBA Plan of Work stages `Concept’ and `Handover and Close Out’ and to enrich and integrate our thought leadership to include smarter procurement, logistics, supply chain management, offsite production, and continuous improvement to achieve operational excellence.  
The first meeting of the joint Procurement and Productivity Thought Leadership Forum will be hosted by Maria Greener of Burges Salmon at their offices in Bristol on TUESDAY the 23rd October 2018 between 11.00am and 1.00pm. Our main task will be to populate a new, joint Single Page Plan. It’s very important that as many of you attend this meeting as possible because we will of course be determining our direction of travel and shaping our future work.  

 We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the 23rd October and working with you all in determining our vision, mission, objectives and specific projects and providing the high-impact leadership needed to achieve operational excellence across the design, manufacture, assemble and construct process.

Steve Clark and Martyn Jones, Joint Chairs of CESW’s new Procurement and Productivity Thought Leadership Forum
