Supplier segmentation working paper - we need your feedback!

Posted by: Michele Lalic

Supplier segmentation is one of three working papers that are currently being developed by the ETIS Procurement and Vendor Management Working Group.

The goal of this paper is to provide a framework in the form of a model as well as compilation of best practices to help realize the benefits of proper segmentation such as: Strategy-based allocation of deals and contracts; Realization of synergies due to economy of scale; Driving of efficiency due to standard processes; Better performance management due to increased power; Prevention of complexity due to more streamlined standard product usage. Additionally, it will give insights into important success factors to manage the transition.

Now we need your feedback. 

  • Is this relevant for you and would you consider using it as a basis for your own segmentation project?
  • Are you planning to implement something similar?
  • If so, would you share your learnings and best practices to include in the paper?

If you're interested in seeing the current version and/or contributing, login to the members corner or contact Michele Lalic, the ETIS Central Office Representative for this group.
