4.0 out of 5 stars Well-informed backgrounder on procurement and supply chain management
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.

This review is from: Strategic Procurement: Organising Suppliers and Supply Chains for Competitive Advantage (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.

This review is from: Strategic Procurement: Organising Suppliers and Supply Chains for Competitive Advantage (Paperback)
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.

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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives you a great understanding, 26 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.
