Keep an eye on my website for sneak-previews of some chapters, 2) NEVI Purchasing Managers Index of April at 48.2 (see for more details section to the right) , 3) our book on Purchasing and Supply Chain Management has been nominated as one of the best in its field (see below), 4) see an interesting link to important social media for purchasing and supply professionals.
This website enables you to quickly go through my publications, presentations and course materials. With this website I hope to stimulate your interest in the role and power of purchasing and supply chain management. Given the current growth of the global economy, the steeply increasing prices of raw materials and energy and the resulting scarcity of many materials and components, purchasing and supply management has become an important differentiator for business performance. See for my many articles and publications the book and publications section.These have now been updated and now include articles which have been published in 2010. See our new article 'Value creation in supply chains: the effects of market orientation, sustainability and innovation on value creation' (Dutch text, Articles section). See also our new article on Efficient Purchasing on 'The Impossible Art of Buying Services' (New Articles section) and ‘The Cost of Sustainability’ (Press). Finally, see literature/book list for other books on purchasing and supply management (Articles Books Publications section).
For upcoming Executive Programs, see Training Section.
Our book seems one of the 10 Greatest Supply Chain Management Books of All Times
Recently our book on 'Purchasing and Supply Chain Management' was found to be one of the 10 Greatest Supply Chain Management Books of All Times! See http://www.scm-operations.com/2012/12/best-supply-chain-management-book.html. Just have a look at how selection of these books took place. The book deserved its position thanks to the many references that were made to it in professional and academic literature. Needless, to say, that I am very pleased with this recognition in the field.
Next year, a new edition of this best selling book will be published. In case you have any ideas for the new text, please, feel free to communicate these to me!
Meanwhile our new book on 'International Contracting: Contract Management for Complex Projects' , which I wrote together with John van der Puil, has gone into production. This groundbraking book bridges the gap between project management, commercial and purchasing management and international business law. It is published by Imperial College Press, London. Expected: end of 2013. See Books section for a short overview of the book.
