There is a Zen Buddhist riddle that says, “If you seek it, you can not find it.” If you seek happiness as an outcome in life for its own ends, rather than a byproduct of merely living life fully, you’ll likely not be happy. The same goes for cost savings. Procurement organizations that focus only on the same approaches for finding purchased cost savings will not be happy, nor will their stakeholders, who own the spending. Not only is it impossible for procurement to save its way to zero, but stakeholders also will view these efforts as narrow and self-serving, rather than helping them maximize the value of their spend to accomplish their objectives. Download this paper, sponsored by BravoSolution, to learn the true art of managing spend and cost reduction.
