Procurement departments that throw out the spreadsheets and turn to a collaborative sourcing platform can reap substantial savings.
Noosh, Inc.'s insight:

"I believe if you get the whole supply chain on a platform, the requirements are clearer, and you have fewer change orders," Tiedens said. "If change orders aren't controlled, they are painful and happen more often. If you have the right tools, you can manage change better."

Last week the North American 3PL Summit and Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum in Chicago took place. Procter & Gamble’s Julio Nemeth, SVP of Product Supply, spoke about P&G’s supply chain initiatives.  He had some interesting things to say:  "They are now using demand sensing data in fairly sophisticated ways, such as the inclusion of customer web search data.  However their forecast accuracy at the SKU is still only plus or minus 20 percent. Clearly, this is one reason they need a responsive supply chain."

Interesting blog piece advocating that procurement management professionals should be more widely included in the top-level strategic decision-making for companies and brands, and no longer seen as purely tactical. 

There is more to procurement than simply "finding the lowest price!" How does procurement in your organization contribute to more than cost reduction?

As much as I appreciate another brand taking up the "outsourcing is not bad" mantle, this article falls a little short of depth. It is already common practice to outsource things like HR, Payroll, and Marketing to external service providers, its just not commonly known as "outsourcing." 


If you own a small business, there is far more you can outsource to expert business service providers to help lower your costs and help you do more with less, allowing you to focus on your most core competencies.
