CATEGORY MANAGEMENT: OVERCOMING BARRIERS TO SOURCES OF VALUE AND INNOVATION IN YOUR SUPPLY BASE

Our white paper, Category Management Through Embedded Intelligence—Part 1, provides a better understanding of the category management process in purchasing and reveals the three most common barriers to defined, operationalized category management: expectations, strategy, and visibility.  

In this paper you will learn how to:

  • Set expectations through detailed analysis. The more you can connect the dots between suppliers and relevant external forces, the more powerful the data.

  • Combine category strategy with optimal levers. Understanding what category management means for your organization and identifying the data that is needed to track performance against category specific KPIs.

  • Harness the power of actionable visibility. Appropriately leveraging the information about each category and deploying technology to increase category management efficiency.
