LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SpendEdge, a global procurement intelligence advisory firm, has announced the completion of their most recent whitepaper on the impact of strategic category management. For several years, organizations have been successful in driving efficiency through strategic sourcing. However, to drive breakthrough value, organizations are now focusing on enhancing their skillsets and modes of operation through strategic category management.
Strategic category management offers a facilitative way of building solutions that support both business and category objectives. Also, it enables organizations to create considerable value for business beyond the agenda of strategic sourcing.
In today’s competitive business scenario, transforming procurement to operate more strategically requires careful planning and execution. Such an approach also helps organizations in identifying essential skillset gaps and performance expectations. Therefore, organizations must build necessary procurement skills to focus on a strategy that is sustainable, cohesive, and adds value for stakeholders.
According to the procurement experts at SpendEdge, “Strategic category management involves the process of developing a clear understanding of the organization’s core values and key objectives.”
