Develop your procurement organization with the right supply chain strategy
It is no longer a matter of cost-cutting alone, even though many companies focus primarily on this aspect of procurement performance. As a value creation partner, procurement provides significant contributions to your company’s innovation capabilities through supplier scouting.
Product innovations, such as in the automotive industry, are barely possible without strategic supplier partnerships initiated by your procurement department, and ever shorter product life cycles create new issues for procurement.
In addition, securing supply in volatile procurement markets is linked to continuous market monitoring and forecasts and remains an ongoing procurement task.
Both appropriate strategies and the suitable organizational anchoring of procurement are required to support and implement these diverse objectives.
