Spend management

Spend management is a part of the category management certification.

The aim of the course

The financial crisis has put pressure on purchasing departments’ ability to contribute to a better bottom line through managing spend. Therefore, purchasing departments’ success largely depends on the ability to organize and analyze spend.

Having an overview of the company’s spend, categorizing it and creating transparency, is a prerequisite to ensure the right focus, a correct prioritization of key action areas and the ability to define targets which deliver value to the company and creates bottom-line improvements.

This course provides participants with tools to make a categorization of spend that are relevant to their specific company. Participants also get insights into the analysis of spend and how these analyzes should be used in relation to focus areas, priorities and objectives.

Content of the course

  • Determine spend
  • Categorize spend
  • Analyze spend
  • Determine priorities and objectives
  • Be able to make daily use of spend analysis


It is an advantage if participants know about spend and classification beforehand.

Target group

All public and private purchasers or purchasing managers who are responsible for a significant part of the company's purchasing volume (strategic purchases and/or valuable purchases) requiring spend insight.

Teaching methods

This course will be based on an initial presentation by the course manager, involvement of participants’ experiences and solutions of group tasks with a subsequent comprehensive discussion.
