Project description

Execution of a supplier risk analysis for a German, internationally operating, utility service provider for water, wastewater and energy.

Project execution

The client commissioned The Deutsche Business Consulting GmbH (DBC) to conduct a supplier risk analysis within the existing risk management system.

The objective was to reclassify the current supplier landscape and identify the strategic key and critical bottleneck suppliers.

To carry out the project, the DBC used its own methodology for creating a Procurement Strategy Map. By classifying the above-mentioned supplier types, existing risks were identified, prioritized and appropriate measures were derived.

The measures were implemented in detailed, target-oriented sub-projects, which were supported by DBC with specialist resources.

Finally, a suitable monitoring and reporting tool was designed and implemented in parallel.
