Strategic Purchasing vs Tactical
Three ideas have changed the way many of the successful companies operate.
The first idea is to strive to acquire inventory just-in-time.
The second idea is that continuously improving quality is a key factor in the success of the organization.
The third idea is that treating your suppliers as partners is a better strategy compared to treating them as adversaries who should be forced to offer lower prices.
Strategic Purchasing vs Tactical Purchasing
While these three ideas above seem easy enough to try, successfully implementing them become almost impossible if the purchasing department still believes that buying in bulk will result in a lower price, that buying the cheapest products will result in an acceptable end product, and that the ultimate skill of a buyer is to continuously haggle until the supplier gives up.
