Product Description

From the Back Cover

The publication of Purchasing & Supply Chain Management, Eighth Edition marks the 28th anniversary since the first edition was published, and it continues its claim to be the most comprehensive textbook on purchasing and supply chain management currently available. It is also of value to professionals and those specialists in other fields who need an understanding of the role and influence of this vital area of business performance.

The authors have used extensive knowledge of real-life events to bring the subject matter to life and to provide a truly international focus on purchasing and supply chain. The economic climate is a massive influence on the need for effective purchasing and supply chain management. Similarly, natural events such as the Japanese earthquakes present the profession with unique challenges. The content of the book will help focus attention in the appropriate risk areas of business. This new edition has been fully revised, covering new developments in the purchasing and supply chain field. There is an increased emphasis on key decisions, supplier relationships, pricing control and negotiation.

This new edition contains:

·        Clarity on strategy and policy making

·        Key facets of public and private sector practices

·        E-procurement, RFID, value for money and relevant skills

·        Source material to facilitate further reading and study

·        New case studies

·        Past CIPS examination questions and discussion questions

·        A comprehensive bibliography, index and glossary

·        New teaching resources, including an Instructors Manual and comprehensive PowerPoint slides available from www.pearsoned.co.uk/farrington

Purchasing & Supply Chain Management strives to be of great value to those aspiring to be leaders in the profession and who are engaged in professional studies for the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply examinations. It will also provide valuable source information for practising professionals. The content covers a great deal of the syllabus of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply at both the Foundation and Professional stages.

Excellent book with a good overview of procurement. Tad expensive at £ 47, but probably worth it for the solid info it gives. I refer to it almost daily as I'm working my way into serious Procurement.

Excellent book. VERY well written and very much to the point, Although being extremely extensive in many areas (thus being a thick volume!), the different topics covered are very well documented and the different cases and examples well illustrate the subjects under discussion. It is a great comprehensive piece nicely suited both for lecturers and students (of a certain level, not for beginners).

This is a must read for students who want an insight in purchasing and Supply Chain Management. It provides all the strategy in need to understand concept of SCM at a purchasing perspective. For those working in that particular field this is a must as a refresher and a reference when in doubt. It wouldn't surprise me to see the book used as a business dictionary within any purchasing office.
