Virtual round table from Procurement Central (United Kingdom) and IPSM (Ukraine)

We open a series of round tables where procurement PROs from United Kingdom and Ukraine will share their best practices.

The workshops will be conducted in English & Russian with translation
All Procurement leaders are searching for the method that delivers results and add value for their procurement activity. It can be confusing what is the right thing to do to get the optional procurement results. We are absolutely sure that Category management is the right method that brings outstanding results.

Most of us know what Category Management is but how it is done and why is it important and what are the benefits?

We explore why Category Management thrives and survives in Procurement

An effective category management plan can aid your business to work with vendors in a more effective style and secure the time between the start and end of the process.

Category management:

  1. can bring better client satisfaction
  2. provides time for business people to focus on their work
  3. delivers diversity and value-based services.
  4. improves relationships with diverse supplier and internal clients.

  • Category and vendor managers

  • Everybody in procurement who wants to develop skills and to get knowledge
