Who we are

The YQ Matix is an initiative of   YQ Purchasing , a Ltd. company. YQ Purchasing develops new techniques that enhance creativity among procurement professionals.   .


Thierry Decocq, Founder and Managing Partner of YQ Purchasing, felt there was a real lack of creativity ("Crea©tivity") in supporting procurement executives to address tomorrow’s procurement challenges. He has more than 20 years of international purchasing experience with several Fortune 50, but also medium-sized companies in various procurement and director functions in Europe, South America and Asia. 

He was a lecturer at the University of Louvain-La-Neuve (Belgium), University of Maastricht (The Netherlands), University of Hasselt (Belgium), University of Twente (The Netherlands) and others.


The IPSERA 2010 Conference in Finland selected him for its new procurement approaches. The IPSERA 2013 Conference selected this YQ Matrix platform and its new procurement measurement techniques as most innovative in procurement field.


With the support of Dr. Lieven Quintens of the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, YQ Purchasing initiated the development of the YQ Matrix in early 2009. The YQ matrix went life in March 2012. Since then, its performance has been drastically upgraded.
