Excellence in Procurement Strategy - Stuart Emmett and Barry Crocker
 
Book Information
 

Full Description:


In Excellence in Procurement, we also gave our outline of a vision for procurement. Therefore, in this Procurement Strategy book, we will now take this vision forward, and show how to align an organisational corporate strategy with an organisation’s procurement objectives. In doing this, we will take the view that the design and implementation of a Procurement Strategy must consider demand (and the customers), the organisation’s processes and the supply (and the suppliers).
