Supply Management

The Forefront Group offers guidance and support for daily strategic sourcing activities, including special projects that your team can not resource in the timeframe demanded by the business. We are all former practitioners, and can quickly transition into your team to support operational supply management activities.

We have supported projects ranging from backfilling category management roles, building the business case for expanded category coverage, consolidating Indirect spend management under a single sourcing strategy, and designing Alliance and Collaboration models that enhance the supplier management process.

We follow and capitalize on The Four Cornerstones Category Strategy Development™ framework, making the necessary adjustments for your organization, to leave you with a repeatable process and a sustainable solution. AND, we can train your resources on this process.
