Interim Manager Procurement

Senior Advisor for Procurement and negotiation management

As an interim manager procurement, I support you in identifying and realizing cost reductions. I analyse where material costs can be saved and take over the operative implementation and negotiation management. In this way, optimized procurement processes are created which have a lasting effect in the company and save valuable resources.

Services as an interim manager in procurement

With the help of comprehensive interim management services, internal knowledge and capacity gaps can be closed and costs effectively saved. For the realization of possible cost reductions, I take on various tasks in procurement: procurement strategy, procurement optimization, procurement organization and procurement controlling. Depending on your needs, I will individually coordinate which services are suitable for you.

What is an interim manager procurement?

Interim procurement managers are external strategic sourcing and procurement experts on a temporary basis. They support companies in various sectors for a specific project period in the area of procurement and offer various services for procurement optimization.

Project procedure with
Frank Poggendrorff

With the help of strategic procurement analyses, you can find out where you can save material costs in your company. I work out detailed results and optimization proposals for your team based on the analysis, which contribute to cost reduction in the long term. When applying cost reduction, I proceed in four steps:
  • 1. Initial interview or workshop

    In an initial meeting, online or in person, I get to know your company. Together we discuss your needs, clarify general project questions and look at what is needed for optimized procurement.

  • 2. Analysis

    After a quick, detailed analysis, it is identified where cost savings can be made. Suppliers, contracts and the procurement market are examined more closely.

  • 3. Realization

    The analysed cost savings are implemented in the short term through strategic procurement levers such as renegotiations and tenders and integrated into the procurement processes.

  • 4. Quality assurance and sustainability

    Optimized processes, coaching and know-how transfer ensure that the savings remain in the company in the long term. It is checked whether these are also optimally stored in ordering systems so that the result is also improved in the long term.

Identify and realize cost reductions!

Experience as an Interim
Chief Procurement Officer (CPO)

For over 20 years as a procurement expert, I have seen strategic sourcing from two perspectives: On the one hand, from an external perspective as a management consultant and project manager for various procurement projects. On the other hand, from an internal perspective as a former chief procurement officer with management responsibility in a line function. Thanks to my varied experience within different industries, I can bring my qualifications from all projects into new projects in a targeted manner.
