Overview

The book's unique perspective serves to address both theory and practice, making it an essential volume for various professionals and practitioners.
-Professional managers and buyers: The newly appointed manager from another business function will find this is the only management book that completely covers the disciplines of purchasing and supply management.
-Practitioners: Use this book as a buyer's handbook, a reference and "how to" manual with easy access to a myriad of contemporary supply management topics.-Consultants and information technology experts: Gain greater insight into the processes and techniques used in the field by reviewing the "nuts and bolts" approach to the fundamental supply management processes in a global context.
-Students of purchasing and supply management or marketing: Find practical material for learning the tasks of global purchasing in the real world.

The vision presented by the authors contains management philosophy, ideas, and opinions in an attempt to create a progressive, contemporary purchasing and supply management posture. The three authors have an outstanding combination of teaching, consulting, and well over 100 years of collective on-the-job experience.

Global Purchasing and Supply Management: Fulfill the Vision, Second Edition will prove to be the most advanced, technically detailed, management book about purchasing and supply management written to date.
