Strategic material management
Definition and execution of material group or commodity strategies is most important and at once the most difficult task for a strategic procurement organization. To come to sufficient results, you need all strategic procurement processes and deep knowledge of purchasing methods. Cost, quality and innovation should be in focus for the material group strategy.
In addition to a comprehensive approach the close collaboration between procurement and the other internal departments, like R&D, quality or production is the key success factor.
Strategic commodity management, the heart of a modern procurement organization, is one of our core competencies. To support our customers tailormade and depending on the individual requirements we developed four different frameworks.
With a specific training we support the two core phases to develop a material group strategy. In a first step we train the main necessary methods and how to come from analysis to insights. In the 2nd step we develop concrete measures for each material field to optimize the situation.
At the end the trainees already developed important cornerstones of the commodity strategy and not only learned about the theoretical framework.
