1st Level –

Inhibited Layer

2nd Level –

Enabling Layer

3rd Level –

Optimized Layer

No or very limited governance or joint processes, standards or tools are in place. Sourcing, contract and vendor/supplier management is often conducted as one off activities with limited focus on long term corporate value and corporate volume effects and efficiencies. By implementing a CLM tool the company reaches the 2nd level.

If adding a stringent use of T&C for the company, and simplifies free text searches in the CLM tool or the file share, the company is getting to the 3rd level of maturity, called the Optimized stage.

Most Interesting

At Opticos we see this as the the most interesting layer for sourcing of complex Services such as IT services and similar. The top 2 levels, being Best in class and world class, better fits direct material, components or in some cases resources. For instance, there are some brokers such as Zero Chaos and eWork that can be used to reach the higher two stages in maturity for some commodities.

Our Experience

Our experience is that a large portion of mid sized to large corporation is as the first or second (being the Inhibiting layer or perhaps in the Enabling layer).
