PERT- Making the Transition from Strategic Sourcing to Category Management
The Procurement Executive Round Table (PERT) –met on October 13, 2016 for a 1/2 – day summit. It was attended by a “Who’s Who” of the Midwest’s top Strategic Sourcing, Procurement and Supply Chain Executives. Over 20 senior executives met who represent over 760,000 employees and $172 billion in revenue. This is a peer-to-peer organization and as such, you must be a Senior Procurement Executive within your organization to attend.
Our next session is planned for January 24, 2017 (Thanks to Craig Meadors-VP Enterprise Operations at CNA Financial for hosting) and the topic will be “Making the Transition from Strategic Sourcing to Category Management“.
PLEASE HOLD THAT DATE ON YOUR CALENDAR OR YOU WILL MISS THIS MEETING!
Category Management is the latest advancement of the Strategic Sourcing process and is taking our professional community by storm. The ability to align strategic business objectives with appropriate sourcing strategies is finally allowing procurement and supply chain professionals to become far more strategic. The move to the C-Suite clearly is made easier by Category Management. Adapted from the retail sector, this paradigm has fundamentally shifted the role of Procurement/Supply Chain. Finally, there is a path to providing significant strategic value to the corporation and shed the stigma of being nothing more than cost-cutters. What needs to happen within your organization to make the transition from Strategic Sourcing to Category Management?
