The DCAT organization delighted to release its first benchmarking study, Value Creation in Pharmaceutical Procurement. The study, released in May 2016, is part of a new member service, DCAT Benchmarking, and was developed by the DCAT Research & Benchmarking Task Force, composed of senior executives from DCAT member companies.
The study examined Procurement’s involvement in value creation, including its level of vertical and horizontal alignment and influence with its internal customers (senior executive management and business units) as well as with its suppliers for achieving corporate and business goals.
With 47 benchmarks assessed, this report serves as an important way to evaluate how your company stands with your peers in the industry.
DCAT Benchmarking is a complimentary service provided exclusively for DCAT member companies.
