9780749473976: Strategic Sourcing and Category Management: Lessons Learned at IKEA

Widely admired for its purchasing strategies, Ikea revolutionized the thinking and execution of procurement departments across the world.  By means of case studies, interviews, practical examples, and comparisons with other leading companies, Strategic Sourcing and Category Management examines the guiding principles behind category-based sourcing, the practicalities of implementing it, and how businesses can realize its benefits.

The book answers four critical questions:
--When is category management a profitable method and why?
--How do category teams create real results?
--How can category management be organized and implemented effectively?
--What makes the difference between success and failure?

Connecting theory and practice, this book is an invaluable resource for procurement and purchasing professionals in any industry.

About the Author:

Magnus Carlsson was head of Ikea's global sourcing for textile, metal, and veneer and was responsible for their component and raw material procurement.  He also led the development of Ikea's concept for supplier development and its business plan process.  He currently teaches, trains, and advises in strategic sourcing and category management.

Review:

“Magnus Carlsson has written a book that is largely sensational. I have not seen any equal presentation of how an organization can operate efficient sourcing. The book's target audience is broad. It's about to run an efficient sourcing operation with relevance far beyond Ikea. I think anyone who in any way comes into contact with purchasing, executives in charge of streamlining their organization, purchasing managers, purchasers, and even students will benefit greatly from the book's content.” (Bjorn Axelsson Professor, Stockholm School of Economics)

"Magnus Carlsson owns [has] an exceptional knowledge in purchasing and in creating strategies." (Henrik Elm Purchasing Manager, Ikea)

"I can really recommend this book. It's an excellent description of how to design processes and a competent organisation to create value in a supply chain." (Arja Taaveniku Chief Officer and Supply Chain Officer, Kingfisher)

"I like the book -- no, I love it! Good structure and incredibly deep, but written in a simple way with very relevant examples of the described theory. For me, this book offers a new level - still in a simple way that makes me want to learn more and in a way that makes me anxious to try out my new theoretical knowledge." (Peter Huber, Group Process Manager IKANO)

“I think this book is fantastic -- full of great new ideas and ways to implement them. Strategic Sourcing and Category Management: Lessons Learned at IKEA will improve the maturity and results of your procurement organization. It explores themes such as influence vs. power and market diagnosis that should be read and considered by mature procurement organizations for the sake of their results and supplier relationships.” (Kelly Barner Buyers Meeting Point)
