Über diesen Titel:
During the past 20 years, the procurement and supply chain profession has radically evolved. Once a tactical and back-office function, it is now a strategic business opportunity that can be fundamental to the success of any organization. A few leading companies have achieved an enormous competitive advantage and outstanding bottom-line performance by incorporating a procurement and supply chain strategy into their core corporate strategy. Why haven more companies seized this same opportunity? The reason is very simple: a lack of understanding at the senior executive level. Virtually all books on procurement and supply chain have been written for the day-to-day practitioner. Now, there is a book to explain this opportunity to all corporate executives, and also illustrate the leadership role the senior executive needs to play. Straight to the Bottom Line will enable senior corporate executives to turn the enormous top-line and bottom-line potential of supply chain and procurement into reality.
-Provides a clear understanding of the performance improvement opportunities, and what is at stake if these opportunities are overlooked, written by and for senior corporate executives
-Outlines a powerful and logical approach for assessing the state-of-the-art in their organization
-Offers ways to estimate the specific opportunities related to implementing a change in procurement strategy and practices
-Details a comprehensive framework for organizing the transformation plan across multiple dimensions
-Gives advice on which areas to focus on first, in order to build and ensure success

"The authors demonstrate with vivid, real-life examples the impact procurement can have on the top and bottom line. They have provided an easy-to-follow blueprint for transforming procurement into the value-driving force that it can be within a company. Straight to the Bottom Line is a must-read for senior executives and for procurement professionals wanting to increase the impact of their procurement organization."

"Purchasing and procurement have been moving from a simple negotiation practice to a strategic interface with external resources. Procurement moved from simple procurement (dealing with discounts) to supply management (dealing with the optimization of supplier relationship: innovation, capacity...).
"Straight to the Bottom Line highlights these new, valuable perspectives. The book brings ideas, facts, trends, practices and this is all about procurement. Senior business executives, as well as senior procurement leaders, should give this book serious attention."
Bernard Gracia, Director, The European Institute of Purchasing Management (E.I.P.M)
"An important read for executive and sourcing and supply chain leaders. Significant insights are provided into critical issues and the strategies required for achieving sourcing and supply chain excellence and how such excellence contributes to top and bottom line performance. Company examples clearly demonstrate successful strategies.
"In addition, Chapter 9, "Transformation: Making Sure the Changes Stick," provides unusual clarity about what companies must do to both sustain and improve sourcing and supply chain performance and resulting overall company performance. Leading-edge strategies and practices, based on the authors' broad-based knowledge and experience, provide useful transformation roadmaps throughout.
"A hard-hitting book that provides guidance to executive leaders about what their companies should do to gain sustainable competitive advantage through sourcing and supply chain excellence."
