Purchasing management. Why ?
But developing a fully efficient purchasing process is not easy. Depending on your policies, culture and objectives, you can measure your company's purchasing processes against four stages of maturity :
|1. Coordination||Finding synergies and avoiding counterproductive disorganisation, especially in choosing suppliers|
|2. Sharing||Whether partial or across the board, pooling resources maximises effects of scale and helps standardise products and services purchased|
|3. Centralisation||The purchasing process is managed at the corporate level and supports its own objectives|
|4. Delegation||Even better than Centralisation, Delegation gives business units full responsibility for procurement within a centrally managed purchasing policy. Every unit works in its own speciality|
Purchasing operations are usually deployed as part of a progressive implementation of a larger purchasing process. Dividing the process into major functions makes it easier to manage them, apply best industry practices and continually improve performance.
