Turning the Corner of Strategic v. Tactical
The average supply management group is 65 percent operational employees and 35 percent strategic employees. Operational employees are primarily engaged in the day-to-day, tactical procurement activities that support the business, while strategic ones engage in high-level activities like category management, supplier relationship management, and stakeholder engagement. How does your organization compare?
