Next Level Supply Management Excellence:
Your Straight to the Bottom Line® Roadmap
The book Straight to the Bottom Line® gave senior executives a roadmap to world-class supply management and procurement. It helped companies save millions and gain a competitive edge. And in the process, the book became a bestseller in its field.
Now this new sequel Next Level Supply Management Excellence: Your Straight to the Bottom Line® Roadmap builds on those ideas — to take your company to the next level.
Next-level supply organizations have the capability to look at where they have been, understand the current state of knowledge, and project what they need to do to be successful over the next five to ten years. They can visualize what the next level of knowledge and expertise looks like.
Because they take a broader view of their domain, they can discern entirely new areas of growth and opportunity. And this broad-based thinking begins to define the strategies, techniques and practices they will need to take them to the next level of performance.
Here are a just a few of unique themes and features that underlie this book, and differentiate it from other volumes:
- The concept of the next level
- A focus on leadership and transformation
- A set of new and expanded topics, including energy management and reducing complexity
- The inevitable merger between supply management and finance
- The power of collective wisdom
