Capability Development

Unlock more potential from your procurement team with ArcBlue blended learning solutions

ArcBlue Capability Development stream consists of tools and applications which operate independently or as a combined program.

The stream is designed to build procurement capability using the 70:20:10 methodology which states that 70% of the learning you do is on the job, 20% through mentoring and only 10% through formal training.

Our blended approach is designed to build on procurement skills in a modular, practical way to embed learning and accelerate behavioural change.

Capability Development

Active learning for effective behavioural change

ArcBlue’s workshops deliver real value to the individual and the organisation by being practical, thought provoking, challenging and fun. Our standard range of training programs includes Essential and Advanced. These cover topics from Procurement Essentials to Advanced Negotiation. We believe that ”active learning” is the most effective way to drive effective behavioural change. All of our workshops are centred on the delegates, and we ask our delegates to bring with them live examples from their workplace to discuss during the event. Our workshops combine content delivery, interactive activities and facilitated discussions. Full notes and books are given during the workshop for the delegates to refer to when back in their organisations.

We can also create modular programs tailored to meet your current requirements. We listen and respond to clients’ business challenges, analyse what skills and capabilities are needed, then build workshops that deliver benefits.

Skills Assessments

Capability Development

Measure and track your knowledge with ArcBlue Skills Assessments – a launchpad for learning

ArcBlue Skills Assessments are used to identify the strengths and development opportunities of teams and individuals. We have assessments designed specifically for procurement, contract management & supplier relationship management. Organisations use the assessment to determine their teams’ baseline of knowledge, target training and development investment, and measure improvement over time. The online survey takes around 90 minutes to complete, comprises multiple-choice questions and it can be tailored to any environment or sector. Using our Skills Assessments, we can benchmark capability across your location and sector. 

The findings are used to inform capability development initiatives and individuals receive a report highlighting their results and recommendations. Group findings are displayed through interactive dashboards allowing you to filter results and hone in on a specific team, job functions or role levels.

Lumina Spark

Capability Development

Personality profiling focused on helping your team work together more effectively

Lumina Spark is a personality profiling tool. Conducted online, it is made up of 144 questions which measure 8 personality traits with 24 qualities. Unlike other personality tools, it doesn’t just classify you as ‘Introvert’ or ‘Extrovert’, we can be an equal measure of each – depending on the situation. Lumina Spark measures 3 personas – looking at your most private, everyday, over-extended self.

Use our Interactive Application to always have your own report on hand and measure yourself against others. When you assess a team of individuals, you can layer their personalities within the App to enhance communication.
