Or perhaps you have taken the risk, bought short on 2 months’ supply, draught has set in, crops are short by 18% on forecast, price per tonne is now up 24% on forecast and you got no chance of pulling down on cost or sourcing supply elsewhere – wow the joys of Procurement!
Honest admission here ok! – for many years I believed this must have been one of the easiest jobs on the planet – you’re sitting on one side of the desk cash in the pocket so to speak – sales on the other side of the desk attempting all sorts of methods to secure the deal.
Since then I have however realised and learned whether we are talking commodities or special one off items – either way, the risk is enormous if you get it wrong – the process does require many minds, many hands, tight governance and compliance to get it right.
