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. It covers all the aspects of strategic procurement. Showing you how to cut costs without harming your business and the importance of recognizing supplier relationship management, this book offers real understanding of the true worth of procurement in the boardroom.
