Category Management

How to identify and operate the most appropriate category management structure within a procurement context.

Category Management is not to be confused with expenditure segmentation. It is a structured framework of activities that is designed to deliver superior procurement outcomes.

This programme will identify a ‘Category Management Matrix’ that will help you understand the steps to be taken and the tools & techniques to be used as you progress through the process. These are essential to establishing and operating a successful category management approach, from a simple clarification of the subject through to the practical issues of making it a reality. This course provides a wealth of information enabling you to identify the most appropriate category management structure, learn how to identify opportunities/strategies and implement these for continued performance.

Course Aims

To explore the issues associated with identifying the most appropriate category management structure, to optimise the effectiveness and efficiency of the procurement organisation as well as progressing through a 4-step, (19 task) process to achieve results/implementation.

This course is intended for: 

People who wish to understand and apply the tools/techniques/processes, either so that they can initiate Category Management within their company or work within an established system and contribute more fully to it. It will include several real-life case-studies to highlight aspects of the content.

Participants should ideally have worked in, or (for stakeholders) associated with, a professional Contracting & Procurement organisation for at least 2 years and be able to demonstrate a knowledge of existing purchasing processes.
