Building supply chain capability

Behavioural Self Evaluation

Against a shifting backdrop, it is crucial to identify the inherent
BEHAVIOURS required to create, to drive change, to
transform thinking, manage and to lead.

What is it?

This is a self-evaluation of your behavioural competencies. You will be guided through critical behavioural styles as you evaluate yourself on 72 behaviour descriptions.

It explores the Personal Attributes, Interpersonal Attributes and Leadership Attributes that underpin performance in supply chain. Behavioural evaluation has been uniquely aligned to recognised distinct phase and capabilities of procurement.

The 8 dimensions are:

  • Opportunity Analysis
  • Market Analysis
  • Strategy Development
  • Market Engagement
  • Negotiation
  • Contract Implementation
  • Supplier Relationship Management
  • Strategy Refresh

What happens when I finish?

On completion you will receive your individual report with an assessment of your evaluation across the behavioural styles and descriptors. It will highlight each dimension of procurement focussing on both your strengths and your development opportunities through the lens of behavioural competence. The key output is a set of 70:20:10 recommendations that will help you consider your development priorities with suggestions for you to use in your workplace.

What is this evaluation based on and how reliable is it?

The evaluation is based on a mix of well established competency framework design and definitions. These frameworks have been reviewed and tailored for the function of Strategic Procurement and the maturing department. The content of each question has been considered by both HR and procurement practitioners in Australia and United Kingdom to ensure relevance, reliability and validity of the evaluation.

What themes are explored in the evaluation?

With the notion of a ‘high-performance supply chain team’ at the epicentre, the evaluation explores themes such as:
> Critical thinking
> Innovating and change
> Communicating
> Influencing outcomes
> Adapting and coping
> Deciding and leading
There is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ profile result but rather an insight into the overall picture.

Can I deploy this across my entire team?

Yes! This evaluation is available online and requires no face-to-face interviews. It can easily be deployed across a geographically dispersed workforce. Each person will receive their own unique login credentials and on completion, their individualised reports. We will then aggregate the scores, visualise them for you and in your ’Group Report’ provide you with the insights you require.
