Purchasing and supply management has become increasingly visible in a world where supply is a major determinant of corporate survival and success. Supply chain performance influences not only operational and financial risks but also reputational risk. Extending the supply chain globally into developing countries places new responsibilities on supplier and supply, not only to monitor environmental, social, political and security concerns, but also to influence them. The job of today's supply manager goes beyond the scope of efficiency and value, into the search for competitive advantage. Book jacket.
