Insights into Supplier-Enabled Innovation 2017

Download our latest research into supplier innovation, and learn about the methods employed by leading organizations to manage SEI and maximize its impact

 

Since 2015, Procurement Leaders and the SEIC have compiled an annual playbook on the latest trends in SEI. Sifting through the research and data collected, 2017’s incarnation reveals the breakneck pace at which SEI has developed over the past two years – and how well embedded it now is across many procurement functions.


But while there is a gathering momentum behind SEI, and a greater array of organizations looking to launch a formal SEI strategy, the levers that need to be pulled in order for it to succeed are still not altogether clear. How many ideas should be coming through an SEI program’s pipeline? What benefits are companies seeing and which roadblocks are preventing them from seeing more? How can internal stakeholders be convinced to part with the resources that would further accelerate SEI?

 

This report sets out to answer these questions. Drawing on the Procurement Leaders and SEIC communities, our survey received responses from more than 100 companies. These organizations were from a broad range of sectors, with most respondents at CPO, strategy director and category leader level.


The report uses the answers provided by these organizations to present some quantitative takeaways. In-depth case studies with key individual respondents have also been used for qualitative insights, creating a window into the methods employed by leading organizations to manage SEI and maximize its impact.
