Successful Procurement in Volatile Buying Markets


During the last few years, the ups and downs of consumption factor's market prices, exchange rates, and various crises, which led to supply chain disruptions, have caused serious turbulence in the manufacturing industry. As a consequence, plenty of manufacturers now seek to improve their volatility management on the supply side. The target of this project is to identify successful procurement strategies, concepts and methods in regard to market price risks, exchange rate risks, and disruption risks. In this way, we strive to support manufacturing industry by creating practice insights in how to successfully manage these challenges.

Manufacturing companies and procurement organizations who want to take part in the study can register at our benchmarking website. Every participant will receive a detailed and anonymized report free of charge including own state compared to state of successful practice companies.
