Objectives and Key Deliverables

* Project's kick off: week commencing on September 5th.

Do a full ‘value chain analysis’ breaking out each component of the present annual spend in the category by activity type, and identify and validate savings opportunities. The ambition is to meet a top-down target per annum in savings (% of total spend), of which a certain amount to be realised in the FY17 P&L;
As upside beyond this baseline, explore incremental margin generation through exploiting new opportunities for building relationships through suppliers, as these become new routes to market for the company's supply base.

Assembly full costs for each stage of the value chain;
Work with the buying team to validate the opportunities already identified at each stage of the value chain to reduce costs, put a size on each, prioritise and come up with a timeline;
Validate bottom-up (opportunity by opportunity) the specified savings target, attribute a sensible scale to the upside opportunity;
Organise target delivery into a manageable set of projects;
Prioritise resource and effort against these projects, ensuring that quick wins are delivered this year and the team is deployed in a cost-effective way;
Come up with an overall timeline and make sure the project team put in place has a rigorous, well-defined plan to work through.
