Category management at the Highways Agency

Category management is briefly discussed on page 48.  One area that you might not expect to find it in operation is the U.K.’s Highways Agency – the body responsible for all our motorways and roads.  But as this link explains, this is exactly what they have adopted in order to help manage their supply chain.  They have identified five categories and have detailed procurement plans for three of these (also online).  There are also a couple of more links to more detailed explanations of what category management is and how its is being applied by the H.A.
