Best practice procurement is a key contributor to any organization’s strategic goals, but requirements and experience differ between sectors: this book provides a range of perspectives on subjects central to improving purchasing performance across public and private, manufacturing and service sectors. Consisting of five Parts: ¢ Supply chain management; ¢ Outsourcing and partnership; ¢ Organization and management; ¢ Electronic commerce; and ¢ Performance evaluation, this book comprises a range of cutting-edge, refereed contributions from the 1999 International Purchasing and Supply Education and Research Association meeting. The authors combine both leading academics and key professionals from organizations leading the way in challenging current approaches to procurement practice. The bringing together of the worlds of research and business provides the opportunity to present evidence grounded in valid theory and methodology in order to develop better practice as transferable strategies and techniques, rather than one-off, quick fix ’solutions’. Best Practice Procurement will appeal to anyone working or studying in a procurement-related function to whom a deeper understanding of how to improve procurement’s contribution to the achievement of organizations’ strategic goals is important.
