I have not seen any equal presentation of how an organization can operate efficient sourcing. The book's target audience is broad. It's about to run an efficient sourcing operation with relevance far beyond Ikea. I think anyone who in any way comes into contact with purchasing, executives in charge of streamlining their organization, purchasing managers, purchasers, and even students will benefit greatly from the book's content. This is another highly recommend book from Kogan Page, and essential reading for anyone who is serious about procurement. This book can help you discover if a category management program is a profitable choice for your organization. And if it is, you'll gain valuable advice and examples of setup and implementation from a real-world practitioner

This unique text is not just a case study - it is supported by insightful interviews, case studies and practical examples, which are compared and contrasted with examples from other leading companies. Strategic Sourcing and Category Management answers three critical questions: -When is category management a profitable method and why? In answering these three questions, Magnus Carlsson not only presents the guiding principles behind category based sourcing, he also demonstrates how category based sourcing can effectively be implemented in practice and provides guidance on how to realise the benefits of this approach. Cleverly connecting theory and practice, the book draws upon both existing and new tools, and applies them in a highly practical context. With application spanning far beyond IKEA, this book is an invaluable resource for procurement and purchasing professionals in any industry. Rating: not yet rated 0 with reviews - Be the first.
