Managed Spend/Category Employee
When strategic employees on category management teams are managing increasing amounts of spend, it brings a more formal process and due diligence. This enables the organization to be more strategic, bottom-line friendly, and better protected from supplier risk. Across industries, category management employees comprise 12% of the total supply management headcount. How does your company compare? Is the balance shifting from tactical employees to more strategic roles like those found on category management teams?
