Rondetafel discussie LINK Magazine pleit voor een focus op ketensamenwerking en innovatie in inkoop

In de maakindustrie moeten inkopers meer en meer strategisch opereren, met een focus op innovatie. Door de waan van de dag – gestuurd door actuele prijsontwikkelingen en beschikbaarheidsproblemen voor materialen en componenten – komen zij daar echter onvoldoende aan toe. In opdracht van Nevi deed Berenschot onderzoek naar de industriële inkoper van de toekomst. Samen met beide partijen hield Link Magazine er half juni een virtuele rondetafeldiscussie over, aan de hand van vier stellingen. Zie 

New edition of 'Procurement and Supply Chain Management' on its way!

Now in its eighth edition, this trusted text provides a complete introduction to the important principles underlying the procurement and supply chain management using a managerial perspective . This edition covers most, if not all,  the latest developments in procurement and supply chain management. Key features of this edition are the following.

First, we present procurement as a strategic business function that management can rely on to drive best value for money, operational excellence, sustainability and innovation form its suppliers. New chapters have been written on category sourcing, supplier relationship management, digital procurement. In order to provide more depth we have introduced in this edition new ‘Theory snapshots’ that reflect contemporary academic thinking and research to further develop your understanding of procurement and supply chain phenomena. Ofcourse, we also have explored the challenges that COVID-19 has brought to the field, including its impact on business continuity, material availability, partnering and ethics. Compared to previous edtions more emphasis is placed on sustainable and circular sourcing. Here, the global imperative for sustainability including a case study on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals is highlighted.Finally we present a new framework to performance driven procurement, where reporting is not limited to internal procurement practices, but extended to external tiers in supply chain relationships.

Volledig herziene, 8e editie 'Inkoop in Strategisch Perspectief' in aantocht!

Medio november zal de Volledig herziene, 8e editie 'Inkoop in Strategisch Perspectief' verschijnen. De groene cover verraadt de nadruk die we hebben gelegd op duurzaam cq circulair inkopen. Datzelfde geldt voor het cyclische (versus het bekende lineaire) inkoopmodel dat we nu veel verder hebben uitgewerkt. Voorts hebben we nu een goede balans gecreeerd tussen inkoop in de private sector en de overheidssector. Hiermee is het boek ook een stuk bruikbaarder geworden voor diegenen die voor overheidsinstellingen inkopen.
