Next-generation sourcing. From cost saving to value creation

Are you still sourcing?

… or are you already creating value for your company? “Each Euro saved in sourcing is a Euro more in EBIT” has been the past years’ dictum in many companies – although this has proved true to a certain extent, it is now time for the sourcing function to enter the next evolutionary stage: to position the sourcing function as value chain manager and holistic optimizer for all costs which occur along the value chain – from n-tier suppliers to the end costumers.

CAMELOT sourcing studies show that in many organizations the maturity of the sourcing function remains below industry average. The consequence: considerable potential for increasing profits and corporate growth remains untapped.
