Hitting the Bulls-Eye: Value Sourcing

Hitting the Bulls-Eye: Value Sourcing

Transforming Procurement from Old School to New Age

The traditional procurement model does not help organizations achieve additional and sustainable financial targets. The CFO is asked to use the procurement department as an internal value partner to address and discuss new ways of spending the budget; often called value sourcing. Cost savings of up to 25-30% can be realized in many industries such as automo¬tive, consumer goods, energy & utilities, financial services and engineering & manufacturing. In this viewpoint, Arthur D.Little showcases three project experiences from the telecommunication and travel & transportation industry to explain the goals, mode of operation and the impact of value sourcing.
