Analytical excellence and strategic partnerships: Executives in procurement and category management

In both procurment and category management, executives need strong analytical skills to identify cost-saving opportunities and measure supplier performance. Their role is to optimize the company's supply chain operations based on facts and data. At the same time, the task is to find the best suppliers and build and maintain relationships with them to ensure continuity of supply. Contract negotiations are also part of the range of tasks.

In terms of personality profile, this means that both analytical and communication skills must be strongly developed. At Digital Minds, we place particular emphasis on personal strength analysis in order to find exactly the right talent for the role in question.
