Today far more people recognize the importance of indirect procurement. Indirect spend includes complex goods and services such as IT, marketing and advertising, facilities management, MRO and professional services. It typically accounts for 60 percent of third-party spend in non-manufacturing companies, more than 90 percent in the financial services industry and sometimes 50 percent of spend in manufacturing organizations. But recognition is only the first step in improvement. While many companies do a good job of sourcing paper clips, far fewer manage complex indirect spend categories with the attention that the potential benefits demand.
To identify how leading organizations manage the procurement of indirect goods and services, A.T. Kearney conducted the 2010 Indirect Procurement Survey.This webinar will provide an in-depth presentation of our survey findings.It will delve into current industry practice, as well as sourcing’s future in the space.
