Dieser Sammelband bietet einen Überblick über aktuelle Ansätze, Theorien und empirische Studien zu diesen Themen. Geschrieben von renommierten Wissenschaftlern und erfahrenen Praktikern macht das Buch den Leser in kompakter und kompetenter Weise mit den aktuellen Trends auf diesen Gebieten vertraut.
The book assists in bringing together the three stakeholders of an innovation – inventor, decision maker and organization. These stakeholders have conflicting requirements and the book offers advice on how and by what methods they can communicate and the information that is expected and required in different phases of innovation. The perspectives of inventor, decision maker and organization are integrated in a business model that enables a common “language” and communication platform for the inevitably emerging tension field and that allows for asking and answering the right questions.
The subject of this book is Procurement Excellence of procuring companies which is deemed a highly relevant topic out of two reasons. Firstly, corporate procurement, respectively purchasing management has witnessed a significant boost of importance over the last years. Increased outsourcing of services to suppliers and, simultaneously, commissioning of international subcontractors, have heavily altered the responsibilities and job description of purchasers with regards to their contribution to the company’s added value. Additionally, product developments along (global) supply chains are growing steadily. On the other hand, digitalization displays future-oriented alternatives for corporate added value and hence provides fundamental opportunities and necessities to reach and sustain (global) competitiveness. Logically, these developments shape the quality of procurement and its processes to suppliers. Only an excellent purchasing department can be an authentic success indicator within a company. This book focuses on the two pillars of Procurement Excellence. To do so, a conception for categorizing and controlling purchasing performances, and a conception for categorizing digitalization will be illustrated in order to make differentiated statements regarding Procurement Excellence. Its two related dimensions will be merged within a final overall statement regarding Procurement Excellence.
