Referentiel des Pratiques Achats 2013-2014

Edition 2013-2014 | Volume 2

Following the first edition in 2012, Oliver Wyman interviewed 100 Chief Procurement Officers, and several CAC40 Chief Executive Officers to draw an updated vision of the state of the art of purchasing function in this new version of the “Référentiel des Pratiques Achats 2013-2014”.

The five dimensions of the purchasing operating model – Vision, Processes, Structure, Human Resources and Management Systems & Tools - have been explored and deepened with for instance a focus on purchasing functions sizing approaches or cross functional performance collaborative processes between the purchasing function and Business Units.

In addition, Oliver Wyman asked this year several CEOs to detail their vision of the relationship between the purchasing function and the top management of their company: what should CEOs expect from their purchasing function and what should CPOs expect from their top management?

All these inputs have been synthetized in this 190 pages new edition of the “Référentiel des Pratiques Achats 2013 - 2014” (available in French only).
