A template to segment and define your spend categories

Peter Kraljic created the Kraljic Matrix in 1983 to help buyers manage their resources more intelligently. Irrespective of its age, the matrix still fits relevant to procurement as ever. Although this classic two-by-two matrix appears simple to many professionals, not applying it accurately leads to defective supplier management strategies.

How can a template help you create category strategies that fit your overall organizational goals?

Profitability is directly proportional to the impact of a supply item upon the bottom line. Spend has various categories; while some categories marginally affect the profit, others carry the potential to define your business' success or failure.

This template enables you to develop tailored procurement strategies for commodities ranked based on their risk exposure and procurement potential.
