Product Description

Review

"

Strategic Procurement is a must-have for anyone in a senior role, whether in procurement or not. Those new to procurement should buy it, read it, and read it again in two years' time.

Supply Management, December 2010

" (Supply Management 2010-12-01)

"

It is also a good thought provoking read for senior practitioners; anyone, however experienced, will find something to spark ideas. That's in part because one of the book's main strengths is Booth's use of examples and experience from her time in the profession as a CPO and senior consultant. The 'war stories' are very good and interesting; for instance, her tips on successful procurement transformation, based on her experience, are very pertinent to anyone embarking on such a programme... But as a highly readable, useful and thought provoking book, it is undoubtedly to be recommended, and Caroline Booth joins the short list of those who are successful CPOs and writers!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 26 May 2011
Format: Paperback
Believe it or not, logistics can be exciting, especially when presented in a flowing, concise essay spiced with case studies and examples from the author's experience. Procurement specialist Caroline Booth makes her points clearly through great organization, vivid stories and effective charts. While some chapters would benefit from some refined editing, readers can appreciate and implement her message about the importance of procurement. Managers can easily follow Booth's suggestions on using third-party providers to complement their businesses' core activities. getAbstract considers this valuable reading for senior executives and supply chain managers who want to elevate the role of procurement and make their firms more profitable.

A comprehensive view of strategic procurement by an author who is clearly knowledgeable and experienced.

An easy-to-read style, interesting examples and useful schematics make it accessible. It could be applied in organisations of almost any size or complexity although the real-life examples and language relate more to large corporations. The best chapters are very clear and well structured; some chapters are not - you may have to think quite hard to discern the key messages but that isn't such a bad thing.

Overall, it delivered the expected value; price not bedrock...

Gave me a whole new appreciation of procurement. As someone who deals with procurement quite regularly in my line of work it has introduced me to some perspectives and techniques which I wish I'd encountered a lot earlier.

Great introduction to the basics of strategy, delivering value to your customer and how procurement plays a role in them. Some good examples as well.

Overall an easy and interesting read.
