The Category Demand Managers own the volume forecast for a category and all the related communication and interfaces. The forecast is used by product supply, finance, and business unit/selling marketing operations leadership. It is a critical job, as the data is used as an input to the category's financial outlook, for capital spending and to insure customer service. The importance of the role to the business and the supply chain coupled with the significant commercial and leadership interfaces make this an SNO (supply network organization) growth assignment. As a category demand manager you will need to interface with the SPS (Senior Procurement Specialist) analysts that develop the bottom up by SKU forecast as well as own the top down forecast, influencing key business and SMO leaders. You will own significant forecast change criteria, forecast reasonability, understanding all commercial metrics and ultimately delivering a 50/50 forecast. Gaining the trust of senior leaders and communicating up the chain effectively is crucial to your success. You will need to manage the difference between the forecast and actuals throughout the month and quarter, track performance, and drive improvement in your category and at a broader regional level.
