The Fourteenth Edition of Purchasing and Supply Management provides a comprehensive introduction to the purchasing and supply chain management field, supported by over 40 case studies. Cases cover purchasing and supply chain issues in a variety of settings, from process industries to high tech manufacturing and services as well as public institutions. The text focuses on decision making throughout the supply chain. Based on the conviction that supply managers, in concert with suppliers and distributors, have to contribute to organizational goals and strategies, this edition continues to focus on how to make that mission a reality.

New Features

  • The focus on decision making in the supply chain has been strengthened considerably.
  • The chapter sequence has been adjusted accordingly to reflect the chronological order of the acquisition process.
  • Criteria for supply decisions have been identified in three categories: (1) strategic, (2) operational, and (3) additional. It is the third category with balance sheet and income statement considerations, all dimensions of risk, environmental and social considerations that is growing in relevance, making sound supply decisions an even more complex challenge.

Key Features

  • The strategic perspective on supply is the unifying theme throughout the text, reflecting the growing interest in the supply side of organizations as a clear way to achieve a competitive edge.
  • Unlike Supply Chain Strategy books, this text includes coverage of purchasing issues which will face operating managers, such as legal and contractual considerations, pricing and investment decisions, capital goods purchasing, and public sector issues.
  • Real-world examples from the authors consulting and ISM experience are built into the text, guiding the coverage to better prepare students for application of concepts post graduation. The text is also a highly consulted resource and reference for practitioners in the field.
