Consulting Category Management: Stages of Excellence
Monadnock Research (Vol VII, No 8) – 5 June 14
Organizations that employ category management best practices to better leverage the organization's management and IT consulting spending can realize between 10 and 20 percent in annual savings and cost avoidance, and other important forms of previously unexploited value. Realizing those benefits, however, is one of the most significant challenges organizations face. The key distinctions between Transaction Executers, Policy & Process Builders, Sustainability Managers and Value Leaders are profiled and analyzed. This Research Note provides an update to the Monadnock Research Consulting Category Management Stages of Excellence, first published in 2009 and widely viewed as the benchmark for assessing consulting category management at global companies and large public service organizations.

Negotiating Blended Rates for Consulting Services
Monadnock Research (Vol VII, No 1) - 4 Feb 2014
Blended rates are sometimes offered by providers of consulting services, or negotiated by sourcing and procurement professionals, to help simplify billing and payment processes. While blended rates may eliminate a lot of detail and dramatically simplify administrative aspects, negotiating the right blended rate is anything but simple. In most cases we recommend that clients avoid blended rates entirely. But if the organization has made a decision to go with them, there are factors to consider in negotiating competitive rates for master service agreements (MSAs) and project-specific statements of work (SOW). This Research Note details our 6-step process to simplify analysis and help clients negotiate better deals with strategic firm partners. (2,150 words, one graphic) . . . More
