Operations Management - Procurement / Purchasing / Sourcing

 
Time to Tell Your CPOs to Collaborate with Suppliers How to create value by collaborating inside and outside the organization. Today, reducing costs is no longer enough. Companies want value, and they want their chief procurement officers (CPOs) to deliver it. CPOs can get the job done by first identifying and then collaborating with their key suppliers. Over the past 20 years, most companies have used strategic sourcing to restructure their supply bases and reduce costs. At times, the approach not only required confrontational relationships with suppliersódeemed necessary collateral damage in the quest for lower costsóbut also enabled some suppliers to become so embedded that they were immune to future competitive sourcing efforts.
