Lean Supply Chain Management: A Handbook for Strategic Procurement

Front Cover
CRC Press, Dec 30, 2003 - Business & Economics - 256 pages
2 Reviews

Unlike other strategic procurement guides, Lean Supply Chain Management considers an organization's "business condition" as a contributing factor in the development of a strategic procurement strategy. That is, rather than taking a "one-size fits all" approach, the author's more individualized approach illustrates techniques specific to organizations operating in a standard or crisis environment.

Highlights include:

  • Methods for developing and tracking strategic procurement initiatives.
  • Planning in the "standard" and "crisis" environments.
  • Coordinating supply chain management and lean manufacturing.
  • Performance measurement tools.

Lean Supply Chain Management provides purchasers and supplier development professionals with the tools needed to transform procurement from a mere cost center to a profit generator.
