Welcome! This website still serves as an important source of information and inspiration to those who consider procurement as a future careerpath and those who want to bring procurement to the next level in their organization. I am grateful that so many students and professionals still visit this website! Meanwhile I have rewritten my major textbooks together with a few esteemed and beloved colleagues and friends. Both the Dutch and English textbooks come with a great and detailed set of teacher materials. Both books are the best I ever made and are my legacy to the profession that I owe so much!

This paper fills that gap, by presenting factors that drive the extent to which business processes can be standardized, performance properties that are influenced by business process standardization, and relations between these concepts. read more
