In 2011, Roland Berger Strategy Consultants once again
carried out an extensive global study on trends and
benchmarks in the purchasing of production and
non-production-related materials and services – the
fourth study since 1999.
The study investigates trends in purchasing
excellence across different industries and countries.
More than 500 CEOs, COOs and purchasing managers were
interviewed. The goal of the study was to identify key
trends and benchmarks in purchasing. This year we looked
particularly at any changes since the 2008/2009
financial and economic crisis. pdf 2011
