Are you really aligned with your organisation?By Peter Smith, Managing Director at Procurement Excellence Ltd. and former Managing Editor at Spend Matters UK/EuropeIn my last article, I looked at some of the factors you need to consider when you're developing a procurement strategy and plan, making the point that not every Procurement team can or should aim to be "world class" in everything they do. I'm presenting a keynote at the Proactis ReThink '19 event in London on November 12 (it's free for practitioners), and I'll be looking in more depth at that issue, along with the topics I want to discuss here.They relate to what should go into your procurement strategy, change programme or annual plan. What are you actually going to do? Getting that right is vital of course, because if you do the "wrong" things, even if you do them well, you won't be thanked by your organisation (or your boss). But what do I mean by the "wrong" things? Well, for instance, focusing on issues or activities that the business (or your public sector organisation) doesn't really value. That's a problem I have often seen over the years – procurement functions working hard, doing good work, but not getting recognition because they're operating in areas that frankly nobody at board level really cares about.So that means getting your strategic alignment right, understanding what drives the organisation and makes it tick, then ensuring your procurement strategies relate closely to that. In recent years, we've certainly seen more Procurement leaders talking a good game on alignment, but I'd argue the real-life delivery hasn't lived up to the hype in many cases!Private sector organisations seek "competitive advantage", which is a fundamental concept that everyone should understand. They look to out-perform their competition in order to thrive. The public sector is a little different – here we have "optimal delivery of policy goals" as the equivalent, to some extent. But, in the private sector, some organisations seek that advantage through cost leadership. Others will look to innovation, or product differentiation, or other key factors, as their source of advantage.Clearly, the priorities for procurement should reflect this. In an organisation that depends on cost leadership, the traditional procurement thinking around cost savings will quite correctly be central. But if our organisation looks primarily to innovation or other more complex factors, then procurement must get on board with a different agenda.That takes us into the next stage of the thinking – what can procurement actually do to help deliver competitive advantage? I've thought about this over some years, and even engaged the supply chain MBA students at the University of Birmingham in the debate when I do my occasional workshops there. And I've come up with eight distinct ways in which procurement delivers value and contributes to competitive advantage. Cost reduction is only one; and I'll be running through all of them at ReThink '19 anyway!We'll also get onto the key enablers, because it's clear that whichever of the eight you are going to focus on, (probably more than one of course), then there are certain basic underpinning essentials that are always important. Having a clear strategy is no good if you don't have the following in place:A clear set of processes / target operating model – it is vital to have a clear picture of how you want procurement to work, both the strategic sourcing / category management element and the transactional aspect of the work.Data – I don't agree with those who say you can't do anything without good data; but without it, you certainly can't get close to what most Procurement professionals would want to achieve. Whether you are going to support cost reduction, innovation, operational efficiency or whatever, you do need to understand your spend, your suppliers, your contracts...

No idea where they came from but wonder if mopped up below some threshold price over time and then transferred in bulk to the final holder and the spread is the fee. We are see lots of lower priced trades then one big one at the higher price. Effect is not to move the price when big buy announced. Hoovering up.

Need to get through the ceiling and then run as it becomes support. Note volume is towards the ceiling price. Looks promising. Ready for the ReThink event and any news that breaks the ceiling. These buys not likely to sell for 10% upside only.

Strange no price reaction yet given they mark this down on small sells like 10 or 20k

I dont think that will happen as the loss are getting higher. A pull back, which wont happen imho, would bounce off the 50-55p area based upon trend.Bad news would be needed to penetrate that and all I am hearing is good news. Even heard of a recent contract that I was surprised didnt make rns or maybe it will be noted on the results, then again it might be more significant in long term valueAll imhoL.

Possibly but if the inverse of 2018 then the move through 60 would be quite quick/precise and it isn't. It was through 100 on the way down.

Pullback to mid 40's ish worse case unless the ReThink event and news hit first and any pullback will be short duration to shake-out holders imho. Dyor.
