Monkey In Your PocketTM


Welcome to

'Monkey In Your Pocket'



A free resource area for people with a passion or interest in the worlds of commissioning and procurement.

Whether in the public or private sector, effective commissioning and procurement are essential in reducing costs, improving service delivery and sustaining a healthy business. 'Monkey In Your Pocket' aims to support commissioners and procurement professionals in understanding their respective roles, evolving their teams and business positioning, and in accepting and promoting the symbiosis of both professions


In his work, 'Origin of the Species', Darwin stated that both strong breeding and the capability to pass on abilities were key to his idea of survival of the fittest. But evolution, of course, takes time and in the business world that's something too precious to waste in a competitive environment that is increasingly tougher to survive. So what if you could short cut some of that learning and jump ahead a few evolutionary stages? What if you could jump from amoeba to reptile or simian (missing out all things fishy along the way)?
