Bellwether Services, an international awarded Lean Six Sigma, lean sourcing, supply chain, spend management, environmental and quality audit consulting firm has made available "It Takes Strategic Vision and a Structured Approach to Get the CFO's Attention," a lean sourcing white paper for sourcing, procurement, purchasing and buying professionals.
This white paper is an overview of an exceptional strategic sourcing improvement project in a Corporate Shared Services environment. It highlights a proven solution, methodology, tools and business results that a chief procurement officer (CPO) would find beneficial and a valuable resource.
"During the current economic downturn, the procurement organization will benefit from reduced costs, streamlined request for proposal process, as well as improve internal customer satisfaction," says John Wilkerson, CPSM, SSMBB. "Now is the time for strategic sourcing and procurement organizations to invest the time in revitalizing existing processes with an innovative lean sourcing solution."
This paper's goal is to affirm that sourcing/procurement/purchasing organizations can progressively streamline processes that impact the corporate bottom line.
"It Takes Strategic Vision and a Structured Approach to Get the CFO's Attention" is applicable in many corporate environments such as private equity, food, retail, public utilities, beverage, travel, global transportation services, consumer products, computer products and medical devices, among others.
