Functie omschrijving

End November, 2015 LWM’s Procurement department organized an anonymous survey among its internal stakeholders.
The stakeholder portfolio has been split up by plant, by function and by department.
The survey consisted out of 19 closed questions and 3 open ones, asking for feed-back within three domains, Business Integration, Procurement Expertise and Customer Satisfaction. 94 internal stakeholders have been invited to participate. The respons rate was 67%, or otherwise 63 (out of 94) colleagues participated.

As a result, three major improvement areas have been defined :
- the alignment of Procurement plans/activities with internal stakeholder’s/company’s goals (and their potentially changing priorities)
- the (pro-actively) identification (and implementation) of cost effective opportunities for (and together with) our internal business partners
- sharing (pro-actively) market information and - trends, departmental achievements, results, plans and experiences
