Procurement Training, Purchasing Training
ADR International has developed a powerful web-based skills assessment tool, ADR DNA (Development Needs Analysis), which will revolutionise the way you analyse your organisation's current purchasing skill levels. This flexible and powerful tool can be tailored to complement the strategic sourcing process and skills framework used in your business. The tool can be used to: Identify existing skills Identify what further skills are needed to make your strategic sourcing process more effective in the future Provide a business-wide key skills gap analysis Provide individual personal development plans Enable managers to provide feedback on their staff This leading-edge product is suitable for any organisation but is particularly effective in large organisations that have a dispersed purchasing team spread over many countries and / or locations but still need to assess and train their people in a structured and consistent way. Because the whole skills audit is done via a secure link to the Internet, it is considerably quicker and cheaper than any other current evaluation technique. It also means that it is non-threatening, and can be done outside the normal office hours, can be used as an annual or more regular event and can be applied consistently across all regions. ADR DNA provides the vital first step in any purchasing skills development program. Having identified, using ADR DNA, where the skills shortages or gaps are, it is much simpler task to provide a demand-led approach to the provision of training and development that fits exactly with the needs of the individual and the business. In addition accurate skills assessment on and on-going basis is vital. Without it there is no way of knowing whether particular approached to training and development are working or failing. For a true 360 approach assessment the survey can be completed by; the candidate, his or her manager, stakeholders and ADR. Alternatively, it can be restricted to the candidate and his or her manager only. The choice is yours. Additionally, DNA can be used to assess job applicants and new recruits. ADR have supported skills assessment with organisations including Pfizer, KPMG, Weetabix, and In-Bev.
