"Effective purchasing management and administration is a continuous process of planning, organizing, directing, motivating, controlling, and evaluating that can contribute significantly to achieving organizational goals and strategies. Creating and maintaining a successful supply chain, which encompasses all phases of a product, from design to disposal, entails challenging existing suppliers, seeking alternative supply sources, and forging new internal and external partnerships. This book is the essential guide to the key functions of purchasing management and its administration, the successful execution of which may determine or dramatically enhance an organization's ability to maximize the value of its purchases and remain competitive in the long term." "Managing Purchasing: Making the Supply Team Work is the second volume in a series of four books created for use in the National Association of Purchasing Management (NAPM) Professional Development Series, a certification program that leads to a C.P.M. (Certified Purchasing Manager) designation. For those professionals not pursuing a C.P.M. certification, this series also provides a sound, comprehensive, and up-to-date perspective on purchasing management and administration. Managing Purchasing is based on the latest edition of the C.P.M. Study Guide and represents the collective work of purchasing academics and professionals who continue to expand the body of professional knowledge in the supply field." "Purchasing can contribute to the overall success of the organization by combating inflation, reducing inventory investment, and lowering the cost of goods. Purchasing professionals can have a significant impact on quality improvement, innovation, and environmental considerations by creating the optimal mix of supply relationships. Managing Purchasing is the authoritative text on the principles and techniques of sound purchasing administration and management."--Jacket
