Corporate Strategic Business Sourcing

Synopsis

Is your company saving money by using outside suppliers? Is outsourcing reliable? As a result, is your company gaining a competitive edge? Or would the company do better by keeping some of the efforts in-house? And how is the performance of outside suppliers and in-house functions measured to facilitate effective sourcing decisions? These are questions the author, a specialist in corporate performance improvement, tackles in this book. The answers are surprising, and the guidance presented will have far-reaching benefits for organizations. He maintains that companies' expectations from outsourcing are not being met, because there is not a methodical approach to measuring and evaluating the performance of sources. By fully assessing the performance of available sources, the best can be selected and the company can benefit long term. Succinctly and comprehensively, Maromonte guides companies step by step through his proprietary techniques for sourcing performance assessment and decision making. Hisbook will be an important, useful resource for senior management and executives, operations managers, finance, purchasing and quality professional, and anyone with responsibility for bottom-line results.
