9780749472283: Strategic Procurement: Organizing suppliers and supply chains for competitive advantage

Most organizations, regardless of industry, spend more money on suppliers than they do on employing their staff. Written for the non-procurement expert, Strategic Procurement explores the 'why' and 'what' of good procurement rather than the 'how.' It explains why you should focus your efforts on this previously neglected area of business and rich rewards, where P&L impact is relatively painless and immediate, where benefit to cost ratios of 10 to 1 are realistic ambitions and in-year payback is possible. This new expanded edition covers all the aspects of strategic procurement, with new chapters on: Mergers & acquisitions; Supplier-related risk management; and Global supply. All case studies are updated and Caroline has added vital new information to her chapters on corporate responsibility, good procurement across the organisation and new ways of supplier collaboration. Showing you how to cut costs without harming your business and the importance of recognizing supplier relationship management, Strategic Procurement offers real understanding of the true worth of procurement in the boardroom.

Recensione:

"The book concentrates on the 'why' and 'what' of good procurement, rather than the 'how'. It covers the whole spectrum, from the basics of what is indirect spend, to securing executive sponsorship for the function, looking at the strategic value of the function rather than "the nuts and bolts of its implementation." ( Supply Management)

"It is also a good thought provoking read for senior practitioners; anyone, however experienced, will find something to spark ideas. That's in part because one of the book's main strengths is Booth's use of examples and experience from her time in the profession as a CPO and senior consultant. The 'war stories' are very good and interesting; for instance, her tips on successful procurement transformation, based on her experience, are very pertinent to anyone embarking on such a programme... But as a highly readable, useful and thought provoking book, it is undoubtedly to be recommended, and Caroline Booth joins the short list of those who are successful CPOs and writers!" ( Spend Matters UK/Europe)

" Strategic Procurement provides a fresh and memorable perspective on the upside potential, common challenges, and unique capabilities of modern procurement, and recognizes new requirements such as risk management and M&A support." ( Kelly Barner, Buyers Meeting Point)

"This book takes the subject of strategic procurement and makes sense of it in a way we can all connect with. The key components of strategic procurement are explored in turn, including key concepts such as category and supplier management and CSR. The subject is contextualised in modern, organisational theory, and throughout the book, Booth weaves in a practical route map that demonstrates exactly what organisations need to put in place if procurement is to make a worthwhile contribution to organisational success. The book is a delight to read and brings the subject to life, made understandable through a rich collection of examples, practical tips, and by links to all our daily experiences. It does not feel like a business book at all but a compelling story of how to make procurement great, and that every senior manager should read." ( Jonathan O'Brien, CEO of Positive Purchasing)

"Successful corporate executives recognize the opportunities presented by strategic procurement. This book shows readers how to cut costs while improving business processes, and focuses on the importance of supplier relationships. Topics covered include optimizing supply chains, understanding the role the entire enterprise plays in good procurement, making the company important to suppliers, dealing with mergers and acquisitions, managing supplier-related risk, and managing the rewards and pitfalls of global supply." ( Inbound Logistics)
