Design your next Procurement function

As Procurement is increasingly being asked to solve more complex business challenges, new types of functions are emerging; smarter, faster, and better aligned to stakeholder and business needs. When Procurement needs to transform, the CPO needs a Blueprint that creates a vision and actionable plan for delivering a next generation function.


Proxima’s Functional Blueprint service creates a design, plan, and business case for the next generation Procurement function. We link current and future business needs to create a blueprint that is organizationally relevant and fit for today and the future. Proxima’s blueprint service provides:

  • A follow on from a Proxima Functional Assessment and precursor to Transformation
  • Detailed modeling, linking Procurement design to business strategy and context
  • Practical recommendations grounded in Proxima’s delivery experience
  • A clear vision and pathway to begin transformation


Often following a Functional Assessment, first we validate the Procurement customer experience and vision against organizational needs. Subsequent design uses Proxima’s seven pillar operating model framework to define the Strategy, Service Scope, Governance Model, Organizational Design, Performance Model, Digital Needs, and Culture. You can expect:

  • Subject matter experts who work collaboratively with your team
  • A blueprint that is tailored to the needs of the organization
  • Dynamic governance model, regularly testing hypotheses and outcomes
  • Delivery of a Blueprint, Business Case, Implementation Plan, and Change Case
