Sourcing Innovation – Pinnacle Model™ Assessment


Everest Group, SIG, and SIGInnova are joining forces to explore sourcing innovation – which innovative practices and technologies are yielding the best outcomes in the overall procurement function and in a few specific areas within procurement: spend management, sourcing strategy development, supplier selection and management, contract management, and sourcing/procurement operations.

The current trifecta of rapidly evolving business demands, technology-led disruption, and focus on outcomes is raising the stakes for innovation, making it a vital competency in all business functions, including procurement and sourcing. While these technology, process, talent, and organizational changes offer new opportunities for procurement, they also present new risks.

As part of this Pinnacle Model™ analysis, we are addressing:
  • The innovative procurement and sourcing practices that Pinnacle Enterprises™ are adopting, and the capability changes needed to succeed
  • The innovative practices that are yielding the best results
  • How these technology innovations are changing enterprises’ sourcing practices and the practices being adopted to create value while also managing sourcing risk

You will learn how your peers – and the best of the best enterprises – are introducing innovations in sourcing. We will share a complimentary summary analysis of survey results once the survey has closed and we have completed the analysis. 

The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and should not require you to search out or collate any data; please simply use your best judgment in responding to the questions.

We anticipate that you will be able to complete the survey in one sitting, but if you are unable to do so, please click Save and continue later in the top of the screen. You will see a drop-down menu that asks for your email address so that you can receive a unique link to return where you left off.

We value your inputs and are committed to the confidentiality of your responses. We will only use your responses for aggregated analyses and will not disclose your answers or your identity in any form to any individual or organization, or publicly.
